Oct. 30—Get ready to laugh, sing and celebrate the joys and challenges of being a woman as "Menopause the Musical" takes the stage in Frederick.
This hilarious and heartwarming musical comedy has entertained audiences around the world for years, and now it's coming to Frederick for a limited engagement.
"Menopause The Musical" has been running for over 20 years, including 15 years as the longest-running musical in Las Vegas history. Nearly 17 million people in 16 countries (more than 500 cities) have attended the performance. Internationally, the show has performed in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lisbon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, United Kingdom, Slovenia, South Africa and South Korea. It has been translated into nine languages.
The show is a musical parody that takes a lighthearted look at the trials and tribulations of "the change." Set in a department store, the show brings together four women with seemingly nothing in common except a black lace bra on sale and a shared experience of hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, and more. As they bond over their menopausal misadventures, the audience is treated to a series of reimagined classic songs from the '60s, '70s and '80s, all with cleverly rewritten lyrics that highlight the humor of the menopausal journey.
The show is at 8 p.m. Nov. 9 and 10 at the Weinberg Center for the Arts.
Tickets start at $35 and are available at weinbergcenter.org, by calling the box office at 301-600-2828, or in person at 20 W. Patrick St., Frederick.
