Here is a first look glimpse at 3 Broadway divas who are in rehearsal for the upcoming Broadway musical “Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown“. An adaptation of the 1988 Pedro Almodovar film. The musical goes into previews at the newly renovated Belasco theatre on Oct 2, with opening night scheduled for Nov 4. It appears to be a classy venture. Presented by the Lincoln Centre, it is being directed by Bartlett Sher, and designed by Michael Yeargan, the same creative team behind the hugely successful revival of South Pacific.
Composer-lyricist is David Yazbek and book writer is Jeffrey Lane, who collaborated on Broadway’s “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”.
Let’s hope it fares better than the recent stage adaptation of another Almodovar film – “All About My Mother”, of which I have previously posted.
Also in the cast is Brian Stokes Mitchell & Danny Bernstein.
