“Menopause The Musical has lifted the spirits of more than 11 million people worldwide, and we are thrilled to be part of this extraordinary mission with GFour and a cast that represents the more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.,” said Komen President and CEO Judy Salerno, M.D., M.S. “Their support makes a difference in the lives of women and men, and helps us move closer to our vision of a world without breast cancer.”

For more than a decade, Menopause The Musical has worked to inspire and support women dealing with life after “The Change.” “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. Menopause The Musical is recognized as the longest-running scripted musical production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly at Harrah’s. The hilarious musical has entertained audiences across the globe in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities, and a total of 15 countries. For more information, visit www.MenopauseTheMusical.com.
