GFour Productions' Menopause The Musical has been delighting women and men of all ages for more than a decade, making it the longest-running scripted show in Las Vegas history. Now GFour and Susan G. Komen have entered an exciting new partnership to bring humor and hope to breast cancer survivors through the Survivor Tour. GFour has pledged to donate $50,000 to Susan G. Komen and also donate $2 from each specially coded "PINK" ticket sold from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2016 to support breast cancer research and services in the cities where the show is performed.
"Menopause has always been a cause-based show," said Menopause The Musical Director Seth Greenleaf. "The cause was helping women see that what they are experiencing is perfectly normal, and that they are not alone. The Susan G. Komen partnership increases the importance of our purpose because now we’re not just talking about life affirming, but lifesaving. We’re deeply proud to be a part of this effort."
Menopause The Musical brings together four women from different walks of life who are all experiencing "The Change." Parodies of familiar tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s poke fun at the physical and emotional changes women go through as well as the reactions of the people around them - leading to howls of laughter as the cast croons lines like, "In the guest room or on the sofa, my husband sleeps tonight!"
In addition to the Susan G. Komen partnership, the just-launched Survivor Tour features a cast of four women who are all breast cancer survivors or co-survivors. Teri Adams, Judy Blue, Megan Cavanagh and Linda Boston play the four women who meet in a department store while over a black lace bra and quickly discover common ground in memory loss, hot flashes, mood swings, and more...
Through hilarious lyrics, jokes, and dance moves, and impersonations, the cast forms a sisterhood with the entire audience, and the Survivor Tour adds another layer of meaning for women who have completed or are currently undergoing cancer treatment.
"We are there to represent and share the joy of surviving cancer and winning today's battle," says cast member Judy Blue. "That is a purpose for coming back to the show, for me, after 6 years, is sharing the show and talking with the audience. And for some,dancing when you thought it might never happen again. It's good. And of course, the funds going to Susan G. Komen and all of the organization's good work is a bonus."
GFour Productions picked up “Menopause The Musical” during its second year of production in 2002. It has since been produced for the last 13 years in 13 countries and 250 cities, and enjoyed by more than 11 million people.
