Menopause the Musical!


Have you ever seen Menopause, the Musical? If not, you are in luck, because the hysterical musical romp through menopause is making it's way to Birmingham, Alabama and, good news, Three Friends and a Fork has four tickets to give away! That's right...FOUR! You and three of your best girls can make plans for a fun night in the Magic City. I promise you, it will be one of the most therapeutic nights of your life. If laughter is the best medicine, Menopause the Musical is a miracle drug! 

Don't get me wrong, you can take your man if you like, but, unless he is a gynecologist, he is probably not going to be able to "get it" like your sisters will. 


A few years ago, some of my best friends and I had the opportunity to see this ingenious production and it is no exaggeration when I say that we laughed until we cried. The tale of four middle-aged, menopausal women on a shopping trip to Bloomingdale's hits all the low points of menopause in the most hilarious way possible. As the four baby boomers, the Housewife, the Soap Star, the Earth Mother and the Professional Woman, plow through the department store in search of lingerie deals, they cover everything from hot flashes to low libido. The musical numbers are even more fun because they incorporate familiar tunes with new words and meanings. For instance, the old Bee Gee's song Stayin' Alive becomes Stayin' Awake as the cast of women commiserate about the difficulties of getting a good night's sleep. The old Peter, Paul and Mary folk song, Puff the Magic Dragon becomes a side-splitting rendition of the lack of energy some menopausal women face in Puff, My God, I'm Draggin'. One of the funniest scenes in the entire play is when the ladies turnTina Turner's classic, What's Love Got to Do With It, into an insanely funny acknowledgement of the helpfulness of certain devices in dealing with lagging libido. Let's just say the "microphone" is quite a prop in this number.

You have between May 13 and June 8 to enter the contest by, (1)visiting our Three Friends and a Fork Facebook page and (2) following us on Google + and/or (3) leaving us a comment below telling us where you plan to eat out in Birmingham if you win the tickets (you know, we are always wanting to hear about dining adventures).
