Adapted from Pedro Almodόvar’s Oscar nominated film, Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (1988), by book writer Jeffrey Lane, Women on the Verge is a chaotic celebration of female fortitude, and a tribute to the women of Spain… But at its lovesick heart, it’s a story about us.

A story about people who are trying to genuinely connect to each other and who are desperately looking for answers. But perhaps the most pressing question of them all is: ‘What’s in the gazpacho?’

“…a joyous evening: an affectionate and defiant tribute to female resilience.” – Sarah Hemming, Financial Times, 2015 Madrid, 1987.

“…gloriously camp, yet seriously heartfelt, celebration of female powers of survival and self-emancipation.” – Paul Taylor, The Independent, 2015

“Best of all is a surprisingly engaging score by David Yazbeck, who deploys a variety of Latin rhythms to make everything from patter songs to wistful laments stand out from the generic-Broadway crowd.” – Richard Zoglin, Time, 2010

Book by Jeffrey Lane Music and Lyrics by David Yazbeck Based on the film by Pedro Almodόvar.
