Book by Arthur Kopit

Based on Fellini's 8 1/2

Guido Contini, a famous Italian film director and ladies man who’s last couple of movies have been panned by the critics is under pressure to make a return to form with his latest film.  However, there is one major problem: he hasn’t written a line of the script and has lost all inspiration. In an attempt to find peace and inspiration, he travels to a luxury spa near Venice. Only to be followed by his wife, Luisa, his saucy mistress, Carla, his fierce producer and her whole film crew. What ensues pushes him to face his ultimate fears within life and death.
