Ladies - and brave men keen to avoid domestic meltdowns by not attending - Menopause the Musical is set to pour more blood, sweat (think buckets) and tears on New Zealand as this award-winning, box office record-breaking show returns for a national tour in August and September, including New Plymouth on August 24 for one night only.

Only Menopause the Musical can take hot flushes, mood swings, and memory loss, and transform them into a universally praised, international sensation.


It sets four women in a department store with nothing in common but a black lace bra they want to buy at a lingerie sale. The female cast pokes fun at their hot flushes, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between them, and a musical that features popular tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s is born.

Sub-titled Women on Fire, this new production features new songs, new dance routines and new gags in a 90-minute tour de force which will finish with the audience dancing with the stars on stage or busking in the aisles.

This theatrical show has been performed in Australia, Canada, USA, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea and the United Kingdom to praise from audiences and critics.

A non-stop comedic celebration of women and "the change".

Menopause the Musical: TSB Theatre, TSB Showplace. Wednesday August 24, 4pm and 8pm. Tickets available online.
