Musical Inspired by Pedro Almodóvar's Movie Nipped Early

The musical, “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” inspired by one of the most acclaimed Spanish directors in cinema, Pedro Almodóvar, will close a few weeks earlier than expected.

Producers announced Tuesday that the show will end on Jan. 2., although it was originally scheduled to close Jan. 23. The new date means the musical will end its run after 30 previews and 69 performances. It opened Nov. 4.

The show, faithful to Almodóvar's 1988 movie both in its narrative and bold, visual style, starred Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Sherie Rene Scott.

The show had mostly poor reviews, with many critics pointing out that it opened cold on Broadway without the benefit of having an out-of-town production team work out its many kinks.
