Wonderful performance. The singing was fantastic. It's a small theater so there are no bad seats.

Based on Fellini’s classic film 8 1/2, the two-time Tony Award-winning musical tells the spectacular story of celebrated film director Guido Contini, who is facing both mid-life and marital crises after turning 40. In an effort to gain inspiration and save his career, Gudio escapes to a Venetian spa, where he finds himself examining his past relationships with the many wonderful women who have touched his life. SpeakEasy Stage has assembled an all-star Boston cast for this production, which stars Timothy John Smith as Guido, and features Aimee Doherty, McCaela Donovan, Kerry A. Dowling, Jennifer Ellis, Maureen Keiller, and Cheryl McMahon.
