Yesterday my Sunday School class took a ladies trip to see the musical, MENOPAUSE. We travelled to the Shakespeare Theater in Montgomery, had a lovely dinner at Olive Garden, and got seated a few minutes before show time. Let me just say this…”best return for my money in a long time.” It was hilarious! I laughed and clapped and hooted and hollered and laughed and sang along and laughed and clapped and shouted and laughed. That was for the first song….there were about 25 more. The best 2 hours I’ve spent in a long time. The show features 4 women …over 40…and nearing or into that “special time of change.” Then they parody songs from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s. They cover it all…hot flashes, night sweats, forgetfullness, weight gain, sex or lack thereof, irritability, etc. You know…all those things us “seasoned ladies” deal with on a daily basis. I urge you to go if it comes anywhere near you. There is a national website:
www.menopausethemusical.com . Here you can find the tour cities. You can also order the CD and songbook and other stuff. Just to listen to the CD is fun. You won’t be disappointed.
I am a Christian woman who has survived many years on the planet. God has blessed me with a wonderful family: husband, 3 sons, a dear DIL, and a precious grandson. I also have dear friends to keep me inspired. I am an artist of sorts and am finding my way through the great blessing of retirement. I recently retired after 20 years as a music teacher. Life is good!
