News   Trinity Rep to Host Summer Run of Menopause the Musical The Off-Broadway and international hit Menopause the Musical will play a summer engagement at the Trinity Repertory Theatre beginning June 5.

The special engagement of Menopause, presented by GFour Productions, will play the Chace Theater through Aug. 2. Casting and creative duties will be announced shortly.

Menopause, according to press notes, "begins with four women, 'Professional Woman,' 'Soap Star,' 'Iowa Housewife' and 'Earth Mother,' at a Bloomingdale's lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra and hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, chocolate binges, not enough sex, too much sex and day-to-day challenges with aging parents, aging children and aging partners."

The musical includes a host of popular songs with tongue-in-cheek lyrics, including "Stayin' Awake" ("Stayin' Alive"), "My Thighs" ("My Guy"), "In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night" ("The Lion Sleeps Tonight") and "Puff, My God I'm Draggin'" ("Puff the Magic Dragon").
