You don’t need to be one of the approximately 40 million women who are currently experiencing “the change” to enjoy “Menopause the Musical.”
The play, which first hit the stage in Orlando 13 years ago, is set in a department store where four women meet at a lingerie sale. Hilarity ensues as they share their menopause-related stories of hot flashes, forgetful moments, food cravings and the aging process. Jeanie Lingers, writer and producer of “Menopause,” created the 90-minute show complete with 25 parody numbers after being inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine.
Buffalo will get to see “Menopause” with four talented women in the main roles, all veterans of the show in various cities across the country: Roberta B. Wall (who was in the original Broadway casts of “Sister Act” and “Leap of Faith”), Sandra Benton, Ingrid Cole and Kimberly Vanbiesbrouck.
“Menopause the Musical” opens Tuesday and runs through July 20 in 710 Main Theatre (710 Main St.). Tickets are available at the Shea’s box office and through Ticketmaster.
