MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL® MOVES UP THE STRIP TO HARRAH’S LAS VEGAS
Show celebrates The Change in its new home this February
Menopause the Musical® has delighted Las Vegas audiences for nine years. Now with 3,625 performances under its belt, the show from award-winning GFour Productions that launched a women’s movement will debut in the heart of the city inside The Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas with preview performances starting February 3 and a grand opening February 20. New show times, along with an expanded stage, upgraded sound and lighting, as well as a fresh set and costumes, highlight the new production’s intimate setting.
“We are thrilled to bring the longest running scripted show in Las Vegas to Harrah’s,” said producers Alan and Kathi Glist. “The entire cast and crew can’t wait to entertain visitors and locals at our new home in the center of the entertainment capital that is the Las Vegas Strip.”
Menopause The Musical®, “The Hilarious Celebration of Women and The Change”® empowers audiences of all ages with its parodies of classic songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s in a show filled with memorable characters, optimism and laughter. Hot flashes, mood swings and weight gain – no subject is off limits for the show’s four stars—the Iowa Housewife, the Professional Women, the Soap Star and Earth Mother, who meet in a department store while shopping for a black lace bra. The 90-minute production inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine celebrates sisterhood as the cast and audience bond, rejoicing that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage”. Since 2001 the show has touched nearly 11 million women worldwide and has partnered with Susan G. Komen® to raise funds to fight breast cancer.
The Las Vegas cast of Menopause The Musical® includes Laura Lee O’Connell as the Iowa Housewife, Paige O’Hara as the Soap Star, Vita Corimbi as the Earth Mother and Lisa Mack as the Professional Woman.
Menopause The Musical® will have performances Monday at 7:30 p.m. and Tuesday through Sunday at 6:30 p.m., as well as an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Tickets are priced at $44.99 for orchestra seats, $54.99 for premium seating and $70 for VIP seating.
