LANCASTER – Since its 2001 opening in Orlando, Florida, Menopause the Musical has entertained an estimated 13 million women in more than 450 cities and 15 countries, with 11 translations.
Now a version of the highly successful brand, which celebrates women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change,” is coming to the Antelope Valley.
“It is all the words, the jokes, the fabulous songs, the Tina wig and that ‘pink microphone’ that our loyal fans everywhere know and love,” said creator Jeanie Linders, “But it is staged in an engaging concert format.”
The 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Disco hit “Stayin’ Alive” becomes “Stayin’ Awake,” Motown favorite “My Guy” is transformed into “My Thighs,” “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” switches to “In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night,” and “Puff The Magic Dragon” becomes the anthem to exercise, “Puff, My God I’m Draggin’”.
“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 theatre 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.”
The “one-night-only” celebration of Antelope Valley women will conclude with a special invitation to join the cast on stage for the famous ‘MTM’ kickline!
