The international hit show “Menopause The Musical” has selected Glendale as a ‘hot’ national market and will play the Alex Theatre for three performances only, Feb. 26 – 27. It doesn’t necessarily mean women in The Golden State are more prone to symptoms of “The Change.” It does mean they will find joy in sharing their experiences. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at www.alextheatre.org or by calling (818) 243-ALEX (2539). Group discounts of 10 or more are available by calling (888) 686-8587 x7.
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 and is the work of writer Jeanie Linders. 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, Fla. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.”
“Menopause The Musical” has entertained audiences across the country in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities and a total of 15 countries. For more information, visit www.GFourProductions.com.
