Menopause, the Musical
In the Fall of 2011, the husband/lover/travel companion and I had seen this show in Las Vegas where it was playing at the Luxor Hotel. He had reluctantly agreed to attend it with me, because, well, it deals with some pretty sensitive and often private female issues. Hot sweats, loss of memory, decreased libido, increased libido, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain and others.
Admittedly, there were mostly females in that audience and again at the show last evening. A few males were in attendance, though, some looking like they were uncomfortable at having to be there.
I was glad he enjoyed himself that night, albeit at the subject of women's suffering.
Because of our good experience with this show in Las Vegas, when we saw that the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater in Lancaster was offering this musical, we decided to take my parents and enjoy a comfortable evening of dinner and laughs with them.
They too enjoyed the show. I looked over numerous times throughout it and caught my father laughing heartily.
They say (whoever they are) that "laughter is the best medicine."
Now if they would just turn down the heat. I'm sweating again.
