Since 2001, the hilarious show Menopause The Musical has entertained and inspired women from coast to coast and internationally. Menopause The Musical is the work of writer Jeanie Linders. This uplifting 90-minute production includes parodies from the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s, and culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing The Change.
Set in a department store, the play focuses on four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra, who 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! "Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing hot flashes or night sweats," says Linders. "There is always a close friend or two who can sympathize or identify with her, but when they are sitting in a theater with hundreds of other women, all laughing and shouting 'That’s me! That’s me on stage!’ they know what they are experiencing is normal. They aren’t alone or crazy. It becomes a sisterhood."
Since the show’s 2001 opening in Orlando, Florida, millions of women of all ages and stages find their spirits lifted by the lighthearted look at menopause. Menopause The Musical has entertained audiences in more than 450 U.S. cities, in a total of 15 countries and nearly 300 international cities. Internationally, the show has visited Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa and South Korea.
