Menopause The Musical comes to Norton Center for the Arts
RELEASED: March 30, 2006
DANVILLE, KY-- Menopause The Musical, the hilarious show that has been entertaining and inspiring women across the globe, is coming to Centre College's Norton Center for the Arts for an unprecedented six-day/eight-show run April 4-9.
The work of writer/producer Jeanie Linders, Menopause The Musical is a 90-minute production featuring 25 re-lyricized tunes from the 60s and 70s and culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing The Change.
Menopause The Musical is currently entertaining audiences across the country in cities including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia and San Francisco, as well as internationally in Australia, Mexico, the Philippines and South Korea. Each week nearly 30,000 women of all ages and stages find their spirits lifted by the show's light-hearted look at menopause. It is estimated that more than 6,000,000 women have attended a performance since the show's opening in Orlando, Florida in 2001.
Set in Bloomingdale's department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance, the musical pokes fun at things such as hot flashes, memory loss, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and eating binges.
The show's intended message is that menopause is a passage, but it should no longer be "the silent passage." It is a stage in every woman's life that is perfectly normal.
