Di­rec­tor’s cut: Nine

Pasatiempo - - Random Acts -

In­spired by Fed­erico Fellini’s 8½ , Maury Ye­ston and Arthur Ko­pit’s 1982 mu­si­cal Nine may have been an at­tempt to one-up (or half-up) the great film­maker. It tells a sim­i­lar story about an Ital­ian di­rec­tor — Guido Anselmi in the orig­i­nal, Guido Con­tini in the spinoff — fac­ing both artis­tic and midlife crises, ex­cept Ye­ston and Ko­pit’s ver­sion in­cludes a lot more song and dance. Stu­dents from Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign present selections from the mu­si­cal to wrap up the per­form­ing arts depart­ment’s fall sea­son. The show is di­rected by Alaina War­ren Zachary, with Shan­non El­liott as dance di­rec­tor, and takes place at 7 p.m. Fri­day, Dec. 12, and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Satur­day, Dec. 13. The per­for­mances are free, although tick­ets are re­quired; call 505-473-6439 to re­serve a place. SFUAD’s Greer Gar­son The­atre is at 1600 St. Michael’s Drive. — Loren Bienvenu
