Description: Gazpacho, anyone? A musical adaptation of Pedro Almodóvar's beloved film of the same name, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN is the brainchild of the talented team behind DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS. Preserving the unusual and exhilarating tone and style of the Oscar-nominated film, the original Broadway production of WOMEN ON THE VERGE was directed by Bartlett Sher and featured an all-star cast including Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Danny Burstein, and Laura Benanti, who was nominated for a Tony for her performance.
Both touching and hilarious, WOMEN ON THE VERGE is a story about women and the men who pursue them... finding them, losing them, needing them, and rejecting them. At the center is Pepa whose friends and lovers are blazing a trail through 1980s Madrid. Along with Pepa, there's her missing (possibly philandering) lover, Ivan; his ex-wife of questionable sanity, Lucia; their son Carlos; Pepa's friend, Candela, and her terrorist boyfriend; a power-suited lawyer, and a taxi driver who dispenses tissues, mints and advice in equal proportion. Mayhem and comic madness abound, balanced by the empathy and heart that are trademarks of Almodóvar's work.

WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN has a small, ensemble cast with many featured roles for women. The upbeat, memorable score is great for trained singers, giving many actors an opportunity to shine. Perfect for companies looking for a zany, contemporary show with a built-in fan base.
