Chad Curtiss, Lost Again

Synopsis:
Born with an unerringly bad sense of direction, but beloved of the gods (at least, so far), our hero, Chad Curtiss, sets out to discover Truth, and, if he's lucky, Beauty. Never one to take the easy path, however, Chad's wrong turns lead him again and again into perils worthy of Pauline, to whom Chad is distantly related. This commissioned cliffhanger was created by arthur Kopit during a recent, ill-conceived trip to Bolivia. Chad's continuing saga, written as a series of ten-minute plays, unfolds in several death-defying performances. Will the daring but reckless Chad Curtiss appear in all the episodes, or will he be lost again?

Nine

Nine
Based on Fellini's classic film 8 , this spectacular musical delighted Broadway theatergoers in a hit revival in 2003 starring antonio Banderas. Nine is the story of a 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 substance of his life-which will become the material for his next film: a musical version of the Casanova story. Nine is now a major motion picture from Rob Marshall, the acclaimed director of the 2002 film version of Chicago. Of the Broadway musical, Marshall said it is a sumptuous and emotional work that translates naturally to the film musical genre because of its seamless relationship between fantasy and reality. Composer and lyricist Maury Yeston worked on the film adaptation and created three new songs for the movie musical, which was released in December, 2009.

Notes:
Book by Arthur Kopit; Music by Maury Yeston; Adapted from the Italian by Mario Fratti. Based on Fellini's 8 . Winner! 1982 Tony Award for Best Musical. Winner! 2003 Tony Award for Best Revival of A Musical
