Meno­pause The Musical

Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes fun of their woe­ful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is cre­ated between these diverse women as they realize that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.” It is a stage in every woman’s life that is perfectly normal.

Menopause The Musical is pro­duced by GFour Productions and is the work of writer Jeanie Linders, director Seth Greenleaf and choreog­rapher Daria Melendez. The laugh­ter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the 1960s and ’70s and ’80s. It is estimated that nearly 11 million women have attended a performance since the 2001 opening in Orlando, Fla. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.”

Menopause The Musical recently celebrated its 3,000th performance and was named the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas. The hilarious musical has enter­tained audiences across the country in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities and a total of 15 countries.
