“Little Triangle’s potential for presenting quality small-scale musical theatre on a shoe-string is one of the most exciting things to happen in Sydney’s indie music theatre scene” – Stage Whispers
Set in 1960s Italy, Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit’s Tony Award-winning musical NINE follows film director Guido Contini as he suffers a midlife crisis fueled by his crumbling marriage and a smattering of unsuccessful films. His failure at the box office is mirrored in his life behind the silver screen – caught in a web of romantic entanglements, involving his wife, his mistress, his muse, and every girl in Venice. Haunted by images and memories from his past and bereft of an idea for a new film, Guido watches as his reality blurs into fantasy. The women in his life, emerge from the shadows of his mind to serenade, seduce or scold him. Though his body is clearing forty, his mind is nearing ten; Guido must grow up if he is to recapture his creativity and save his marriage.
Established in early 2017, Little Triangle aims to present underperformed theatrical productions that challenge audiences and performers alike at a low price point – in the hopes to expand, educate and diversify the music theatre audience base, especially amongst young people. NINE is proudly supported by The USU’s Bright Ideas Program.
