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. You bring the chips. We’ll bring the passion!

WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN will be directed by Richard Israel and choreographed by Leslie Stevens. Musical direction by Corey Hirsch. Production supervision by Katie DeShan.

Presented in staged concert reading format on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 7pm, at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA.
