Three of the four talented women who appeared in last season’s record-shattering run of “Menopause The Musical?” are reprising their roles for Syracuse Stage’s unprecedented third production of the wildly popular show. Returning cast members are Tiffanie Bridges (Power Woman), Stephanie Pascaris (Earth Mother) and Liz Hyde (Iowa Housewife). This will be the first Syracuse run for Kimberly Vanbiesbrouck (Soap Star), who has performed “Menopause” around the country for more than four years, including the longest running show in Detroit theatre history. Satori Shakoor, the Syracuse Stage understudy who performed “Menopause” in Albany and Detroit, will also join the cast for this event.

“Menopause The Musical?” brings together four women (Power Woman, Earth Mother, Soap Star and Iowa Housewife) at a New York City Bloomingdale’s lingerie sale. The women have nothing in common but a black lace bra and hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, chocolate binges, not enough sex, too much sex and plastic surgery. “Menopause The Musical?” joyfully parodies 25 of the top baby boomer songs of the ’60s and ’70s celebrating women who are or will be experiencing “the change.”
