Barrier islands span the eastern seaboard from New York to Texas. They stretch long and narrow, hugging our coastline as they drift slowly through geologic time on currents born from the spin of our planet. Fed by nutrients carried by rivers to the sea and supported by sand washing from one island to the next, these diverse and dynamic islands protect our coastlines as they absorb the impact of tides, waves, currents, storms and winFlorida Museum of Natural History

Event Title: Menopause The Musical
Where: Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Time: 7:30 PM EST
HOT FLASH!
Menopause The Musical
RETURNS TO GAINESVILLE
Celebrating 10 Years of "The Change"
Opens May 3rd at The Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

It's time to kick-up those high heels! The Off-Broadway and international hit sensation Menopause The Musical® is returning to Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to celebrate its 10 years of "The Change!" The limited engagement opens on May 3rd.

The hilarious musical is set in NYC's Bloomingdale's store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale.

The cast laughs at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women as they realize that menopause is no longer The Silent Passage! It is a stage in every woman's life that is perfectly normal!

Menopause The Musical® is the work of writer and producer, Jeanie Linders. The laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the '60s and '70s and '80s. Disco hit "Stayin' Alive" becomes "Stayin' Awake," Motown favorite "My Girl" is transformed into "My Thighs," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" switches to "In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night," and "Puff The Magic Dragon" becomes the anthem to exercise, "Puff, My God I'm Draggin'".

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". "Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing hot flashes or night sweats," says Linders. "There is always a close friend or two who can sympathize or identify with her, but when they are sitting in a theatre with hundreds of other women, all laughing and shouting‚ 'That's me! That's me on stage!' they know what they are experiencing is normal. They aren't alone…or crazy. It becomes a sisterhood."
