Friday (April 3)

Opening Night for “Nine” at The Studio Theatre, Little Rock: Directed by The Rep’s Producing Manager Rafael Castanera, “Nine” is a musical performance based on Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical film “8 ½.” “Nine” is the story of celebrated film director Guido Contini and his attempts to come up with a plot for his next film as he is pursued by hordes of beautiful women, all clamoring to be loved by him and him alone. Flashbacks reveal the inspiration for his next film: a musical version of the Casanova story. The film opens at 7 p.m., Friday, April 3, at The Studio Theatre. Admission is $50. Other performances follow throughout the month. Learn more here.
