“Menopause The Musical” is a groundbreaking celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of “The Change.” The hilarious musical comedy has evolved as a grassroots movement of women who deal with life adjustments after 40 by embracing each other and the road ahead.
Set in a department store, “Menopause The Musical” features four women of a certain age who meet by chance while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing unmistakable similarities among one another, they joke about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and more.
The laughter-filled, 90-minute production gets audience members out of their seats and singing along to parodies of classic pop songs of the 1960s, 70s and 80s. These women form a sisterhood and unique bond as they rejoice that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.”
“Menopause The Musical” is produced by Tony Award-winning GFour Productions. This national tour stars Sandra Benton, Megan Cavanagh, Rebecca Fisher and Roberta B. Wall.
Since its debut in 2001, “Menopause The Musical” has entertained audiences across the United States in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities and a total of 15 countries.
