Quotes & Highlights

“Bring the waterproof mascara because you’ll laugh so hard, you’ll cry. With humor and compassion, writer, producer, and lyricist Jeanie Linders has captured the experiences of every woman in her 40s and 50s.” —chicagocritic.com
“Linders’ humorous new lyrics coupled to old favorites provide a good laugh. When the show ended, the entire audience was still clapping their hands to the final number, yelling and letting out whoops of approval.” —Daily Californian
“‘My Guy’ becomes ‘My Thighs,’ ‘I’m Sorry’ transforms into ‘I’m Flashing,’ ‘The Great Pretender’ laments brain collapse, and ‘A Sign of the Times’ is ‘looking in the mirror and seeing my mother.’ Get the picture? It’s hilarious, good fun and the perfect destination for a girls’ treat out. (Judging from their guffaws, the handful of guys in the audience were enjoying it, too.)” —Baltimore Times-Herald
