LuPone, Scott on Broadway ‘Verge’

Mitchell, Burstein, Peil also on tap for 'Breakdown' musical

Patti LuPone, Sherie Rene Scott and Brian Stokes Mitchell are among the thesps lined up for Lincoln Center Theater’s Broadway tuner adaptation of “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

LuPone, in her first Broadway role since scoring a 2008 Tony for “Gypsy,” and Scott, recently nommed for a couple of Tonys for last season’s tuner “Everyday Rapture,” are joined by de’Adre Aziza (“Passing Strange”) and Nikka Graff Lanzarone as women whose lives intertwine in Madrid in the 1980s. Mitchell (“Kiss Me, Kate”), Danny Burstein (“South Pacific”) and Mary Beth Peil also appear in the production.

Tuner adaptation of the 1988 Pedro Almodovar film is penned by Jeffrey Lane and David Yazbek, the duo who wrote “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which also starred Scott. Bartlett Sher, who helmed Burstein in “South Pacific,” directs.

LCT has been developing the “Women on the Verge” musical for a couple of years now, with Salma Hayek, Jessica Biel and Matthew Morrison among the thesps who have appeared in previous developmental readings.

“Women on the Verge” begins previews Oct. 2 for a Nov. 4 opening at the Belasco Theater.
