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. 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.
