Roundabout books ‘Look’

Adds 'Nine' to next season

NEW YORK — The arrival of a long-aborning Burt Bacharach/Hal David musical and a revival of the musical “Nine” are among the high-lights of the Roundabout Theater Co.’s 2002-2003 season announced Wednesday.

With the exception of the season-opening revival of “The Boys From Syracuse,” no dates or venues have been confirmed.

The Bacharach/David show, to be staged either at the Roundabout’s Broadway home, the American Air-lines Theater, or another Broadway venue, will be directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Ann Reinking. Called “The Look of Love,” it will feature more than 30 of the pop com-posing duo’s familiar tunes. A previous attempt to craft a show around the songbook “What the World Needs Now…” was abandoned after a tryout at the Old Globe Theater several seasons ago.

“Nine,” the musical adaptation of Fellini’s movie “8½,” with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Arthur Kopit, will be directed by David Leveaux (“The Real Thing,” “Electra”) at a Broadway venue. Antonio Ban-deras has been mentioned for the lead role, but there was no casting an-nounced.

Leveaux also will direct for the Roundabout a Broadway revival of August Strindberg’s “Miss Julie,” in a translation by Richard Nelson.

Tony winner Brian Bedford will play Orgon in a new revival of “Tar-tuffe” to be staged at the American Airlines Theater. Guthrie Theater artistic director Joe Dowling will direct Richard Wilbur’s verse translation.
