“Menopause The Mu­si­cal” is a ground­break­ing cel­e­bra­tion of women who are on the brink of, in the mid­dle of, or have sur­vived “The Change.” Now cel­e­brat­ing 16 years of fe­male em­pow­er­ment through hi­lar­i­ous mu­si­cal com­edy, “Menopause The Mu­si­cal” has evolved as a “grass­roots” move­ment of women who deal with life ad­just­ments af­ter 40 by em­brac­ing each other and the road ahead.

Set in a de­part­ment store, four women meet while shop­ping for a black lace bra at a lin­gerie sale. Af­ter notic­ing un­mis­tak­able sim­i­lar­i­ties among one an­other, the cast jokes about their woe­ful hot flashes, mood swings, wrin­kles, weight gain and much more. These women form a sis­ter­hood and unique bond with the en­tire au­di­ence as they re­joice in cel­e­brat­ing that menopause is no longer “The Silent Pas­sage.”

In­spired by a hot flash and a bot­tle of wine, “Menopause The Mu­si­cal” is a cel­e­bra­tion of women who find them­selves at any stage of “The Change.” The laugh­ter-filled 90-minute pro­duc­tion gets au­di­ence mem­bers out of their seats and singing along to par­o­dies from clas­sic pop songs of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

“Menopause The Mu­si­cal,” now in its 16th year of pro­duc­tion, is rec­og­nized as the long­est-run­ning scripted pro­duc­tion in Las Ve­gas and con­tin­ues to en­ter­tain nightly at Har­rah’s Las Ve­gas. The hi­lar­i­ous mu­si­cal has en­ter­tained au­di­ences across the coun­try in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 in­ter­na­tional cities and a to­tal of 15 coun­tries.
