Menopause The Musical
Emery Entertainment and the Hammer Theatre present Menopause The Musical, the longest-running off-Broadway production in Las Vegas and an international hit show. Playing for 16 consecutive years, it continues to make audiences laugh at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino on the Strip. The musical has toured across the world in more than 450 U.S. cities and nearly 300 international cities in 15 countries.
Rave reviews from the New York Times and LA Times praise Menopause for being witty and hilarious: “It’s impossible not to laugh” at the “fresh, funny, and simply terrific” musical. Viewers have described the musical as a “Rocky Horror Picture Show that celebrates women.” And members of all genders love the performance with one male patron pronouncing Menopause as “a mandatory humor workshop for men.”
On stage, the cast makes fun of their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats as they bring down the house with musical parodies of classic tunes from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.
Karen Gedissman, who plays the Iowa housewife, says that the show is a tribute to women and real sisterhood. She has known audiences who leave the show feeling like they have truly bonded with the actors on stage.
“This musical has so much humor and so much heart,” Gedissman says. “It’s not just funny—it’s enlightening and transformational.”
Come celebrate the bond between women and the changes that they go through in their lives.
The Hammer has partnered with Emery Entertainment to bring more off-Broadway productions, including Robert Dubac’s The Book of Moron (March 29-31) and Late Nite Catechism (May 18-20). They will also be bringing Michael Ingersoll’s Artists Lounge Live featuring Elvis: My Way (Feb. 23-24).
