WEST END VERSION (2015) Book by Jeffrey Lane, Music & lyrics by David Yazbek Based on the film by Pedro Almodóvar Directed by Dawn Monique Williams Music Direction by Lindsey Schmeltzer
A sizzling, exhilarating musical farce! Newly revised for the London West End, the musical whisks us off to sexy 1980s Madrid, and to the unravelling world of Pepa, Pepa’s wandering lover, the lover’s nutty ex-wife, their son and his fiancée, Pepa’s ditzy friend and that friend’s suspicious boyfriend, plus a lawyer, and a talkative taxi driver. All this comedic chaos is served up with a very specially laced gazpacho, and an irresistible Spanish beat.
