“It’s impossible not to laugh”…

…as the New York Times memorably said in its rave review of Menopause – The Musical during it’s hit run on Broadway. 

Now you get to see what the fuss was about, when it comes to the Manning Entertainment Centre next Wednesday, May 16 at 8pm.

Inspired by a hot flush and a bottle of wine, Jeanie Linders created Menopause the Musical as a celebration of women who were 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.

Do you think that 500,000 Australian women could be wrong? We don’t think so. 

After all, that is how many have seen this hilarious show over the last two and a half 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!

Maybe the attraction is the songs that everyone grew up with – The Great Pretender, Only You, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Stand by Your Man, I Will Survive and 20 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. Come and see for yourself.

We guarantee that you will leave the theatre uplifted and joyous.
