PRESS RELEASE: MENOPAUSE: THE MUSICAL Returns to Arizona Broadway Theatre
Back by popular demand, the international hit show Menopause: The Musical returns to Arizona Broadway Theatre for a limited run, January 4-12, 2019. Menopause: The Musical is a groundbreaking celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived "The Change."
Now celebrating 16 years of female empowerment through hilarious musical comedy, Menopause: The Musical 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, four women meet while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing similarities with one another, the cast jokes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and much more. These women form a sisterhood and unique bond with the entire audience as they rejoice in celebrating that menopause is no longer "The Silent Passage."
Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, Menopause: The Musical was created as a celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of "The Change." The laughter-filled 90-minute production gets audience members out of their seats and singing along to parodies from classic pop songs of the '60s, '70s and '80s.
