Broadway Palm now presents "Menopause the Musical."
This international phenomenon has been seen by more than 11 million people in 11 countries since it debuted in a 76-seat perfume-shop-turned-theatre in Orlando in 2001.
Four women at a Bloomingdale's lingerie sale have nothing in common except a black lace bra ... and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex, chocolate binges, day-to-day challenges with aging parents, aging children and aging partners. They share their ups and downs through a collection of 26 re-lyricized baby boomer songs from the '60s, '70s and '80s.
PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN
“Menopause the Musical” is now playing at Broadway Palm.
The Disco hit "Stayin' Alive" becomes "Stayin' Awake," Motown favorite "My Girl" is transformed into "My Thighs" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" switches to "In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps At Night!"
Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived "The Change." From its first performance, the show has evolved as a "grass-roots" movement of women who deal with life after 40 and all the challenges that result in the mental, physical and spiritual freedom of the baby boomer generation.
"Menopause the Musical" will be at Broadway Palm through May 18. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday with selected matinees. Be sure to check out the all-new, upscale dinner theatre experience on Saturday nights.
Ticket prices range from $35 to $55 with discounts available for children and groups of 20 or more. Tickets are now on sale and can be reserved by calling (239) 278-4422, by visiting: www.BroadwayPalm.com or by stopping by the box office, located at 1380 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers.
