Inspired by a hot flush and a bottle of wine, Jeanie Linders created Menopause The Musical as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived The Change. Since its first performance, the show has evolved as a grassroots movement of women who deal with life after 40 and all the challenges they conquer mentally, physically and spiritually.
Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. They quickly bond and make fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women as they realise that menopause is no longer the silent passage!
Maybe the attraction to the show is the songs that everyone grew up with: The Great Pretender, Only You, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Heat Wave, I Will Survive and more, all sung with gusto and all with their new lyrics. Or maybe it is the realisation that there is a wonderful life waiting after The Change.
Do you think that more than 800,000 Australian women could be wrong? We dont think so. After all, that is how many have seen this hilarious show over the last three years. And they love it! So much so, many of the audience members have come back time and time again to join with their sisters in this 90 minute, one act laugh-a-thon!
Come and see for yourself. We guarantee that you will leave the theatre uplifted and joyous.
