Preview: Menopause the Musical at the Harris Center
Step aside, menstruation. There’s a new sheriff in town. It’s menopause. There’s also a new musical in town—Menopause the Musical. In it, four women clash at a Bloomingdale’s lingerie sale, only to discover they have more in common than they first thought. Parodying hits from past decades, the show features 25 musical numbers, including “Night Sweating,” a fun riff on the Bee Gees’ “Night Fever.” Since its 2001 Orlando debut, the show has traveled all over the globe, promising a frank, comical take on a period of life that’s rarely put in frank, comical terms.
