At 10:35, we talk with members of Spinning Tree Theatre’s production of “Nine,” currently running through November 20 at The Living Room, 1818 McGee, Kansas City, MO. Based on Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical film “8 ½”, the musical NINE focuses on celebrated filmmaker Guido Contini, facing a midlife crisis, and without a subject for his newest film, he feels heightened pressure from the women in his life. Nine contains the music and lyrics of Maury Yeston. The book is by Arthur Kopit. Originally directed and choreographed by Tommy Tune, NINE won Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Original Score in 1982, and Best Revival of a Musical in 2003.

Simone Briand has lived in New York and Miami, but grew up on the high plains of western Kansas, where she learned to love the sky, sonic booms, and Engelbert Humperdink. Her older siblings’ hippie albums set her on the path to loving music of all types. A self-described zen-hobo, she currently resides in Overland Park, KS, and works as a librarian. Simone Briand will play music from: Son Lux, Laura Lisbeth, Dillon, Solid Space, Rasputina, Silver Apples, Roxy Music, Apollo Heights, and Ray LaMontagne.
