Based on the film by Pedro Almodóvar
7:30 p.m. Thursday - Saturday and 2 p.m. SundayBoth touching and hilarious, it’s a story about women and the men who pursue them… finding them, losing them, needing them, and rejecting them. At the center is Pepa whose friends and lovers are blazing a trail through 1980’s Madrid. And why do they all deep showing up at her high-rise apartment? Gazpacho anyone?
Along with Pepa, there’s her missing (possibly philandering) lover, Ivan; his ex-wife of questionable sanity, Lucia; their son, Carlos; Pepa’s friend, Candela, and her terrorist boyfriend; a power-suited lawyer, plus a taxi driver who dispenses tissues, mints and advice in equal proportion. Mayhem and comic madness abound, balanced by the empathy and heart that are trademarks Almodóvar’s work.
