The Survivor Tour® is proud to fundraise for Komen, which since 1982 has invested more than $2.6 billion in research, screening, treatment, education and support programs for people affected by breast cancer. "Menopause The Musical has lifted the spirits of more than 11 million people worldwide, and we are thrilled to be part of this extraordinary mission with GFour and a cast that represents the more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.," said Komen President and CEO Judy Salerno, M.D., M.S. "Their support makes a difference in the lives of women and men, and helps us move closer to our vision of a world without breast cancer." Menopause The Musical is set in a department store where four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and more! Singing along to classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s, the cast forms a sisterhood with the entire audience. Whether naturally occurring or thrust into as a result of cancer treatment, Menopause The Musical helps women embrace and celebrate that menopause is no longer "The Silent Passage." "GFour Productions is happy to partner with Susan G. Komen® to raise important awareness, while proving that laughter truly is the best medicine," said producer Kathi Glist. For more than a decade, Menopause The Musical has worked to inspire and support women dealing with life after "The Change." "Menopause has always been a cause-based show," said Menopause The Musical Director Seth Greenleaf. "The cause was helping women see that what they are experiencing is perfectly normal, and that they are not alone. The Susan G. Komen partnership increases the importance of our purpose because now we're not just talking about life affirming, but life saving. We're deeply proud to be a part of this effort." Menopause The Musical is recognized as the longest-running scripted musical production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly at Harrah's. The hilarious musical has entertained audiences across the globe in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities, and a total of 15 countries.
