Still going strong, Menopause The Musical starts at a lingerie sale and has toured 750 cities around the world
April 15, 2019
(April 15, 2019; Folsom, CA) Four women at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex, and more. After noticing similarities among one another, these women form a sisterhood together and unique bond with the entire audience, as they rejoice in celebrating that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.”
Having entertained audiences in more than 750 cities around the world, in over 15 countries, this beloved musical parody debuted in 2001 and is still going strong. “You’ll love it… It’s hilarious… Go see it!” (Joy Behar, The View). Set to classic tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s, “the musical is infectious; it's impossible not to laugh!” (New York Times). It’s the longest running scripted musical in Las Vegas history.

“Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing hot flashes or night sweats,” said author Jeanie C. Linders. “There is always a close friend or two who can sympathize or identify, 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 musical sold out during its previous run at the Harris Center in 2014 and 2016, and little is the surprise: “A rollicking girls’ night out” (Boston Globe); “It’s fresh, funny and simply terrific” (Los Angeles Times). “It’s a gentle-spirited celebration of real women and the rough seas they navigate as they enter middle age” (Journal Sentinel).
