It's a whole new take on what a musical can be, and the cast's energy is phenomenal. We had a wonderful time!

Brilliant stage adaption with 5 star Laura Benanti,
Oct 18, 2010
reviewer: from Portland, Maine
Being familiar with the Pedro Almodovar movie probably helps but is not necessary. The stage itself is as much a part of the success of this play as the music and acting. They have done a fantastic job bringing the Spanish atmosphere from the movie to the stage. There are a lot of scenery changes giving the stage a frantic pace. Sherie Rene Scott does a great job carrying the lead and has a tremendous voice. Patti LuPone and Brian Stokes Mitchell each have an opportunity to show off their powerful voices and style and add enough star power to warrant seeing this show. The play seems perfectly cast and with a few minor changes and tightening up this should be a major success. The star though is Laura Benanti. She is perky, gorgeous, has perfect comic timing, and has the voice of an angel. "Model Behavior" is sung brilliantly. To hear her sing is one of the most pleasureful experiences to be had anywhere on any stage. Plus she is as nice in person as she appears. She is a major talent.

Fun evening,
Oct 11, 2010
reviewer: from Silver Spring, MD
I saw Women on the Verge's "opening night" preview and thoroughly enjoyed it. A bit of tightening could help - perhaps cutting the dancing, which serves no purpose. All the voices were great, especially the depth and tone of Stokes' voice. Wish the songs were more memorable but it was a fun time.

Great Version of an Almodovar Classic,
Nov 28, 2010
reviewer: from New York City, NY
We took a risk with the mixed reviews. I must say as a New Yorker, I'm rarely captivated by Broadway shows these days. However, we loved this fast paced show with colorful characters, catchy tunes, and great visual movement. Lots of fun! It may be easier to follow the show if you've seen the film in advance. We enjoyed it!

Challenging and Entertaining,
Nov 30, 2010
reviewer: from NYC
Saw the Belasco performance and it was a great experience. Hard to describe; did not leave humming a tune, unable to classify it other than a visual feast with lots of wit. I loved the constant action and leaps in the story and especially the imagery constantly changing.Broadway productions are in a special class and this one certainly is. No need for coffee before this show!Curiosity caused me to then see the film. Belasco is streets ahead of the movie.
