Top of our checklist this season is Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, a musical adaptation of Pedro Almodóvar’s 1988 indie classic that both bona fide fans and newcomers will love.
Adapted by an all-American team and starring our very own Tamsin Greig (of Episodes and Green Wing), she stars as Pepa, a Madrid-based TV actress having a trying day when her lover Ivan dumps her by voicemail, setting in motion a chain of events that leads her to discover he’s been concealing a son and a crazy wife. Intrigued?
Throw in direction from Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher (the man behind South Pacific and The King and I), a hilarious and heartfelt storyline, plus a set to die for and this is one seriously hot ticket. Best book fast to avoid disappointment...
