“The change” may cause consternation for some women – and their significant others – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be funny.
“Menopause the Musical” is coming to the Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno for an engagement starting Feb. 25. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, the original off-Broadway musical begins with four women at a Bloomingdale’s lingerie sale. These ladies have nothing in common – but a black lace bra, hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, chocolate binges, not enough sex, too much sex and day-to-day challenges.
The women share their ups and downs through a collection of 25 re-lyricized baby boomer songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. It was written by Jeanie Linders and is produced by South Florida-based GFour Productions. It has been seen by more than 10 million people all over the world since it debuted in a 76-seat perfume-shop-turned-theater in Orlando, Fla. in 2001.
Tickets are available from $29.95 for adults, $24.95 for seniors. Dinner and show packages available from $39.95. Room and Show package from $49.95.
