"Menopause the Musical" was in Trenton at the War Memorial Theater. The four very talented and accomplished women from the national touring company dazzled and delighted the small but vocally appreciative audience for 90 plus minutes with highly entertaining jokes, gags, and of course, music about - what else - Menopause.
"The Wild Party" is a wild party indeed. Based on an epic poem by Joseph Moncure March, and borrowing the poem's words for its lyrics, it is billed as a musical, but is more an operetta. Very little of the dialogue is spoken. Most of it is sung in a bold, brazen, somewhat dissonant but still melodic contemporary score.
