A hit off-Broadway and internationally, this inspiring musical parody shows the funny sides of the "change" that all women experience in mid-life. Four ladies with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale in a department store. They poke hilarious fun at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. With classic tunes from the 1960s, '70s and '80s pushing the action along, these diverse women create a sisterhood as they realize that menopause is truly a shared experience that doesn't have to be suffered in silence.

I've attended other Rover Drama Works plays and this one sure didn't measure up. The actors worked very hard, but the play described as a farce, was more like something from the Three Stooges. The costumes literally fell apart during the play.
I hope the next play presented will be able to take advantage of some of the talented actors involved.
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’art “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancée’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer. The catch? A blown fuse has plunged the apartment into darkness … just as said neighbor arrives home.
Unexpected guests, mixed-up cocktails, and the flame of a single lighter impede Brindsley’s frantic attempts to set things right before light is restored. A brilliant farce described by the International Herald Tribune as “pure hilarity.”
