Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was performed at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA. Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 7pm.
Music and Lyrics: David Yazbek Book: Jeffrey Lane.
Based on the 1988 Pedro Almodóvar film of the same name
Preserving the unusual and exhilarating tone of Pedro Almodóvar’s 1988 Academy© Award nominated film, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN is a fiery tale of passion, confusion and broken relationships. An actress in Madrid has just been dumped by her lover. This sets off a crazy, 48-hour farce full of dizzying complications, bike rides, taxi chases and some pretty potent gazpacho.
Directed by Richard Israel. Choreographed by Leslie Stevens. Musical direction by Corey Hirsch. Production supervision by Katie DeShan. Costumes by Carol Kline.
