Set in a department store where 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.
Since March 2001, the hilarious show has entertained and inspired women around the world. The show is the work of writer and producer, Jeanie Linders. This laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the ‘60s and ‘70s and ‘80s. The show is directed by Kathryn Conte and choreographed by Patty Bender with musical direction by Alan Plado.
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, the show was created as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.” Since its first performance, the show has evolved as a grassroots movement of women who deal with life after 40 and all the challenges that result from the mental, physical, and spiritual freedom of being a woman.
The show has entertained audiences across the country in more than 250 cities and in a total of 13 countries. Internationally, the show has visited Australia, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, United Kingdom, South Africa, and South Korea. Each week women of all ages and stages find their spirits lifted by the show’s light-hearted look at menopause. Last year over 5,000 people attended the Lutcher performance of “Menopause the Musical.” For more information on this production visit the shows official Web site online at www.menopausethemusical.com.
