Menopause The Musical
This week Sam chats with cast members from Menopause The Musical in Las Vegas. Vita Corimbi and Laura Lee O'Connell talk about showbiz, giving back and of course their pets
It's a "chick flick," but fun for everyone as the woes of aging women are discussed in the only fun way possible…. in the form of '60s, '70s and '80s songs.
The show debuted on March 28, 2001 in a 76-seat theater in Orlando. Since the curtain first went up almost five years ago, the musical has been performed in 40 cities and six countries.
The premise of the story involves four women who meet at a lingerie sale. They come from diverse backgrounds, but have one thing in common -- they are experiencing menopause.
The four characters include a "hippie type" earth mother; an ambitious power woman; a housewife living in the shadow of her husband's success; and an aging soap star on the verge of being replaced by a younger woman.
The 90-minute show includes song parodies of 25 popular recordings from the 1960s-1980s, such as "I Heard It Thru the Grapevine; You No Longer See 39" and the disco-era "Stayin' Awake! Stayin' Awake!"
Covering most of the topics related to the inevitable time period in every woman’s life from insomnia to memory-loss and even touching on taboo topics such as sex, this comedy will leave the audience laughing about a typically unfunny and dreaded topic.
