From its first performance, Menopause The Musical has evolved as a "grassroots" movement of women who deal with life adjustments after 40 and all the challenges that result in the mental, physical and spiritual freedom of the post-World War II baby boomer generation.
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. The laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from classic pop songs of the '60s and '70s and '80s. It is estimated that nearly 11 million women have attended a performance since the 2001 opening in Orlando, Florida. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of "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.
