In its first professional production since its Broadway debut, the musical comedy Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown makes its Chicago area premiere in a brand new production at Theatre at the Center, 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, Ind. Sept. 11 through Oct. 12.
With a Latin-infused score by Tony Award-nominated David Yazbek and book by Jeffrey Lane, Women on the Verge… is a touching and hilarious story of a group of women whose relationships with men lead to a whirlwind of emotions- love as they find them, confusion as they lose them and passion when they need them. This regional premiere is directed by William Pullinsi with choreography by Danny Herman and musical direction and orchestrations by William Underwood.
Set in 1980’s Madrid, the TatC production includes Chicago favorites Cory Goodrich, Larry Adams, Hollis Resnik, Nathan Gardner, Summer Naomi Smart and Bernie Yvon. The original Broadway production featured well-known Broadway heavyweights including Tony Award-Winners Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Laura Benanti.
The 400-seat Theatre at the Center is a year-round professional theater at its home, The Center for Visual and Performing Arts, 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, Ind., just 35 minutes from downtown Chicago. Ticket prices range from $40 – $44. More information is available at www.TheatreAtTheCenter.com.
