A hit off-Broadway and internationally, this inspiring musical parody shows the funny sides of a woman's "change of 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 fun at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. With classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s pushing the action along, these diverse women create a sisterhood as they realize that menopause is a shared experience that doesn't have to be suffered in silence.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was great! The Blind Boys were also very good -- they have so much energy it's wonderful to see and their voices are great. The only problem was The Warner Theatre -- we waited 35 min. in line outside in the frigid temperatures to pick up our tickets. All the Warner staff kept saying was that they didn't expect so many people to "choose" to get their tickets at Will Call. RIDICULOUS!!! They held the show for a little while, but I still feel like we missed the first 10 min. and we were so ANGRY and COLD! I don't want to go to the WARNER THEATRE again if I have to wait like that for will call!
A soulful, uplifting tribute to the spirit and the sounds of New Orleans since 1939, The Blind Boys of Alabama have sung a powerful blend of traditional and contemporary Gospel music. Though much has changed during seven prolific decades, the four-time Grammy winners and members of the Gospel Hall of Fame have a global following as diverse and fervent as ever. They are joined on this special evening by the Crescent City’s most revered guardians of the New Orleans Jazz tradition, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
