​Time For The Change: Celebrate The Joys Of Womanhood With The Ladies Of Menopause The Musical

It's the time of year when the temperatures drop below our usual coastal Carolina comfort zone and we tend to spend the nights and weekends bundled up in our favorite winter blankets and binge watch on our favorite Netflix series! The New Year in Myrtle Beach started with a blast, as in a blast of winter weather from Mother Nature that closed schools, roads and even Broadway at the Beach for two days!

With snow, ice and the bitterly freezing temperatures, we Grand Stranders have huddled into a post-holiday hibernation. However, with the Fahrenheit finally on the rise and the winter white beginning to vanish, there's no better time to get out of after-festive funk and take in a show with your favorite gal pals!

GFour Productions, winners of 54 Drama Desk and 44 Tony Awards, is bringing back the international hit Menopause the Musical this January to Legends in Concert at Broadway at the Beach for eight performances.

The show is set in a department store and features women who are on the brink of, in the middle of or have survived "The Change". From hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, wrinkles and more, the ladies form a bond as they deal with life adjustments with hilarious comedic relief, singing and dancing with the whole crowd!

Whether you or someone you love is in the before, middle or after stage of "the change", this show will have you embracing your female future as you live, love and laugh during the 90 minute hilarious getaway.

So grab your friends, and start the year with the best remedy for life's milestones and enjoy Menopause The Musical January 17th – 21st at Legends in Concert at Broadway at the Beach! Click here to reserve your ticket and enjoy the show!
