Menopause The Musical 2: Cruising Through 'The Change' will embark on a new tour this year beginning on the East Coast of the U.S., followed by more than 50 cities across the United States and Canada.

Menopause The Musical 2® is the new sequel to the long-running, international, hit show Menopause The Musical®, a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have experienced “The Change.” Five years after their chance encounter in a department store, we set sail with our beloved ladies for more high jinks on the high seas — plus hot flashes, mood swings, and memory lapses! Join them on a trip of self-discovery, backed by a new soundtrack of toe-tapping parodied hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

Stops on the national tour include New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Florida, Texas, California, Michigan, the Carolinas, Massachusetts, Georgia, Tennessee, Washington, and more. See full list of cities below. Marking the launch of the tour in September, the new soundtrack will also be available for purchase and streaming.

In addition to the sequel tour, the beloved original production of Menopause The Musical® currently has international engagements in France, South Korea, Hungary, Australia and Canada beginning this month. See below for international performance schedule. Beloved for more than 20 years and seen by more than 17 million fans, it has played every state in the continental U.S., more than 500 cities worldwide, and has been translated into nine languages. The New York Times said “It’s impossible not to laugh!”; Los Angeles Times called the original “Fresh, funny and simply terrific!”. It is the longest-running musical in Las Vegas history, currently performing nightly at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Seth Greenleaf directs the sequel, with Kim Simari (Assistant Director) and Karie Koppel (Dramaturg), based on the original characters created by Jeanie Linders, with additional book and lyrics by Karen Bishko and Jeanette Hopkins. 

The creative team includes Choreography by Jonathan Stahl, Scenic Design by Sean McClelland, Sound Design by David Lanza, Lighting Design by Jean-Yves Tessiere assisted by Willow McGuinty, and Music Direction by Peter Aylin.
