Founded in 1920, Phoenix Theatre has delivered 90 years of innovative entertainment. Based on Federico Fellini's Italian drama 8 1/2, the show-stoppingly sexy Nine tells the story of a celebrated film director, Guido Contini, as he struggles with the plot of his next film, his turbulent marriage, and the onslaught of sultry voices of past lovers who are haunting his waking life. The musical, which has won a Tony Award, combines sensual performances with a sweeping score from Maury Yeston and arrives teeming with the driving rhythms of dance numbers such as "Be Italian"—known to cause audiences everywhere to rush out and trade in their cars for Vespas.
Phoenix Theatre welcomes guests to its intimate space with relaxing amenities, such as the desserts and snacks at the Urban Oasis Cafe, beer and wine selections, and preshow performances by musicians such as Mark Foreman, Jeremiah Neal, and Rowlf from Muppet Babies. Choose your preferred performance date here, and exchange your Groupon for tickets at the box office before the show.
Originally established as the Phoenix Players in 1920, Phoenix Theatre operated out of the Phoenix Little Theatre for almost 30 years before settling into its current location. The 1952 building would become the core of the city’s cultural area, later drawing such establishments as the Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Library. The company’s current performance space does little to draw the audience’s attention away from the stage, save for the crisscross of industrial railings that support the catwalks and the retired jerseys of older playwrights.
