Menopause the Musical is a very entertaining show! Even though I had a hard time understanding majority of their jokes about menopause because I obviously have some time to get there, the stars did a great job. The Soap Star (Eileen Bowman), the Iowa Housewife (Melinda Gilb), the Earth Mother (Bets Malone), and the Professional Woman (Anise Ritchie) are the stars of the show. Each song is twisted into their own little joke about menopause and it is hilarious, everyone in the audience laughed at every one. One of my favorites was “My Guy”, but instead of singing about her guy the Iowa Housewife sang of the cellulite on her thighs; it was very funny hearing someone sing about her weight gain from the cravings that you get from menopause.
Another one of my favorites was when the Professional Woman sang “Great Pretender”. Anise Ritchie is an extremely talented singer and her performance when singing that song was just amazing. It was hard to keep your eyes off of her and you moved to the edge of your seat every time she hit a high note. Overall, I really enjoyed the play each character had their own story to bring to the table and I liked what they had to show to the audience. No matter what background you have or where you come from, you are never alone in your struggles. These women all came from different backgrounds but they were all able to come together to help each other through their problems with menopause. It is also a fun way to show people that you are never alone and the best cure to help you through your problems are your friends. This play is not just for women, “men love it too” is something that theater loves to display.
Menopause the Musical has raised over one million dollars for the National Association of Cancer Society and they are partners with the YMCA. I encourage you to check it out! You will have a great time, lots of laughs, and a chance to participate in helping them raise money for cancer!

Hi! My name is Krista Buligon and I am a Senior at San Diego Christian College. I am a student athlete majoring in Communication with an emphasis in the Film and Media. I have always had a strong interest in all types of movies because they take me to another world. But my favorite places to go to are New York with a crazy spider kid saving the day, Gotham with a vigilante dressed as a bat fighting a penguin or joker, the wizarding world of Hogwarts with a kid with a scar on his head fighting “He Who Shall Be Named”, or a galaxy far far away with jedi knights battling sith lords with colorful lightsabers. My friends always laugh and call me a super nerd for loving any forms of science fiction but those movies shape me into who I am today. When I am not on the basketball court or working at In N Out Burger I am either on my couch watching movies or writing for fun. I hope that after I graduate I can turn my writing hobby into a career and impact others the way movies have always impacted me. Instagram: @Princess_Krista11 | View My Projects
