Harriton Theater Company presents: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

Posted: March 16, 2017

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, Women On The Verge will delight both fans of the film and newcomers to the raucous tale.

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.
