The Drama Club Presents: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
Forty-eight hours in the lives of some mad women, and who’s to blame? Men, of course.
On the weekends of February 22-24 and March 1-3, the Drama Club transported audiences to the tangled, countercultural world of 1980’s Madrid with their performance of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. The musical, adapted for the stage from Pedro Almodóvar’s film by Jeffrey Lane and David Yazbek, mixes comedy and melodrama as it follows four women’s desperate attempts to restrain their lying, cheating partners. From Spanish accents to a moving taxi cab, this show provided a multitude of acting and scenic challenges, but our performers were up to the task! The outstanding cast, band, and crew showcased their excellent vocal skills, intricate choreography, rhythmic musical interludes, and complicated scene changes, selling out all performances on the second weekend.
We cannot thank enough the efforts of director Angelos Klonaris, art director Christine Douris, musical director Antonis Vasileiadis, and choreographer Ioanna Mitsika. Congratulations to all involved for their hard work in producing a spectacular show!
