BWW Reviews: Aging Book, Refreshing Cast in MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL at Bucks County PlayhouseBWW Reviews: Aging Book, Refreshing Cast in MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL at Bucks County Playhouse
by Marakay Rogers - Jan 26, 2015

It's an amusing show, and it's not so female-oriented that men won't be able to get a few laughs at it as well. It's surprisingly free of male-bashing, celebrating women rather than complaining about the opposite sex, and it's relatively gentle, although if you're easily embarrassed by the subject of masturbation, don't bring family members who will be dying to tease you about it after the section on sex. If you see it for no other reason, see it for the cast themselves. (more...)
