Menopause, The Musical

Menopause The Musical, a worldwide cult theatre hit celebrating memory loss, grey hair and chocolate binges, brought critics out in a hot flush when it hit London this week.

The show rewrites hits from the 1960s and 1970s to examine the perils of "the change of life" -- "My Guy" by Mary Wells is transformed into "My Thighs," while the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" becomes an ode to a sex aid.

Since its premiere in 2001, the musical, which shows the friendship between four women who meet while fighting over lingerie in a department store, has been seen by over eight and a half million people in nine countries.

Well, you've just got to laugh about it. Or rather, that's what I hear.... okay ... you can stop laughing now.!

I heard about this show but never saw it - too late for me. Been there, done that already.
