The musical, running through May 8, is described as "a vibrant and provocative musical based on Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical film '8 & 1/2.'... It focuses on film director Guido Contini, as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife, his mistress, his film star muse, his producer and his mother, among others."

Nine won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1982 and again in 2003 for Best Revival of a Musical.

Laurie originated the role of Bob Crewe in the Chicago company of Jersey Boys and was seen in multiple touring productions, including Chicago, Miss Saigon and The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The Phoenix Theatre is located at 100 E. McDowell Road in Phoenix, AZ. For tickets call (602) 254-2151.
