Presenting the regional premier of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown: The Musical!
Playing at The Bug Theatre November 7 through 29th!
Channeling the burst of energy and freedom in post-Franco Spain, Pedro Almodóvar’s WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN was one of the most unusual and exhilarating new films in years. It was nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, and quickly became not just a classic, but a favorite. Lane and Yazbek, the team behind DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, took Almodóvar’s tale and infused it with their own wry, comic style and an irresistible Spanish beat. Both touching and hilarious, it’s 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. And why do they all keep showing up at her high-rise apartment? Gazpacho anyone?
