‘Menopause the Musical’ arrives at Lutcher in May

ORANGE — The international hit show “Menopause The Musical” has recognized Southeast Texas as a ‘hot’ national market and will return to the Lutcher Theater, 707 Main Ave. in Orange, for performances at 7:30 p.m., nightly, Wednesday, May 7, and Thursday, May 8. It doesn’t necessarily mean women in this area are more prone to symptoms of “The Change.” It does mean they will find joy in sharing their experiences. Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at 409-886-5535 or by visiting www.lutcher.org. Group discounts of 10 or more tickets are also available by calling 409-886-5535.

Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes 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 realize that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.” It is a stage in every woman’s life that is perfectly normal.

“Menopause The Musical” is produced by GFour Productions and is the work of writer Jeanie Linders, director Seth Greenleaf and choreographer Daria Melendez. The laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s. It is estimated that nearly 11 million women have attended a performance since the 2001 opening in Orlando, Florida. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.”

“Menopause The Musical” recently celebrated its 3,000th performance and was named the longest-running scripted production in 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.
