SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //
The international hit show “Menopause The Musical” will return to Atlanta for seven performances from July 30 through Aug. 4. The hilarious production will play the Alliance Theatre at the Woodruff Arts Center; tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at woodruffcentertickets.org or by calling (404) 733-5000.
It is estimated that nearly 11 million women have attended a performance of “Menopause” since the original 2001 opening in Orlando, Fla. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “the change.”

The plot centers around four women at a lingerie sale – they’ve got nothing in common but a black lace bra and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and more! A hilarious parody, the work is set to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s and frequently inspires cheering and dancing in the aisles.
The all-female cast of the coming Atlanta run will include Becca McCoy (Iowa Housewife), Rebecca Fisher (Soap Star), Valerie Mackey (Earth Mother) and Atlanta-native Sandra Benton (Professional Woman). GFour Productions – founded by husband-and-wife duos Kenneth and Sandra Greenblatt and Alan and Kathi Glist and now the winner of more than 30 Tony Awards – is producing.
