Las Vegas show Menopause the Musical: “It’s not a hot flash, it’s a power surge.”
World renowned Las Vegas show “Menopause The Musical” is a coming of that age story, as told by four of the most genuine, funny and insightful women who ever braved the unique challenges of the “change.”
The quartet first meets during a lingerie sale at Bloomingdales, bickering over who should get the best bra on the rack. Tempers flare, and they soon acknowledge their mutual culprit. Choosing to express their thoughts through the medium of song, the Las Vegas show stars sing a very unique rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools,” replacing timeless lyrics with “change, change, change — change of life.”
Thus, the Las Vegas show stage is set and the theme is carried through song, scene and symptom, as the group bonds by way of mutual experience and an unashamed humor that is truly freeing for those who share their struggles. Each floor of the department store provides a new topic of conversation and another reason to burst out into hilarious spoofed versions of famous songs. Even the Beach Boys get the treatment with a special version of “California Girls” sung to the lyrics “I wish we could all be sane and normal.”
“Menopause” is the only Las Vegas show fully stocked with weight gain, mood swings, memory loss, hot flashes and night sweats. In the end, and with their invitation, you’ll be up on stage singing along with the women who hammer home the laughter inducing message that humanity is a condition we all share.
