What’s a hot flush between friends!? Friggin’ hilarious that’s what!
Ladies – and brave men keen to avoid domestic meltdowns by not attending – MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL is set to pour more blood, sweat (think buckets) and tears on New Zealand as this award-winning, box office record-breaking show returns for a national tour in August and September. Tickets on sale this week.
Only MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL can take hot flashes, mood swings, and memory loss, and transform them into a universally praised, international sensation.
MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL sets four women in a department store who have nothing in common but a black lace bra they want to buy at a lingerie sale. The female cast pokes fun of their woeful hot flashes, wrinkles, night sweats, and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between them, and a wonderful musical that features popular tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s is born.
