Relationships add up to ‘Nine’ on B’way

Banderas and family celebrate actor's debut

NEW YORK — Fidelity was the theme of the show, so it made perfect poetic sense that Edie Falco and Stanley Tucci used Thursday night’s “Nine” preem as their first public outing together.

The duo had appeared naked on stage as the titular couple of “Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.” But there they were in the flesh as simply themselves, the Liz and Dick of the new millennium.

Inside the theater, Melanie Griffith kept watch over her husband’s brood of 20 relatives as they all watched Antonio Banderas play the philandering Guido Contini in his Broadway debut, and they all made it to the party at the China Club.

The family that plays together stays together in this case. On July 11, the former film star takes to the stage as Roxie Hart in “Chicago” — a role Melanie was born to play 20 years ago — across the street from hubby Antonio’s Broadway home.
