“I you need a good laugh, this is the place to be,” said Megan Cavanagh; adding, “we will make you laugh until your face hurts.”
Megan Cavanagh is a Hollywood veteran who has dozens of film and television credits to her name including “Scrooge & Marley”, Exes & Ohs”, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius”, “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous”, “The West Wing”, “Boston Public”, “Home Improvement”, Brunhilda in “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and as Marla Hooch in the film and television series “A League of Their Own”. But for the past 13 years Megan has lent her talents to the musical comedy “Menopause: The Musical” where she plays the role of the Earth Mother.
In a recent interview Megan noted that she has been playing the role for so long that she has become the Earth Mother including carrying around a Lunar calendar.
“Menopause: The Musical” centers around four distinct women who meet by chance at a department store and discover that in one unique way they are the same – navigating the life cycle change known as menopause. Over the course of the 90 minute show, the four women solve their issues with side splitting comedy, musical parodies, and making lots of trips to the ladies room.
Throughout the course of the show, the women perform their own versions of popular songs from the 60s, 70s, and 80s…but one song remains unchanged but Megan hints that the song will only be revealed in the show.
The longest running scripted musical in Las Vegas history, “Menopause: The Musical” is currently on tour around the U.S. After weekend stops in Peakskill and Long Island, the show makes it way to western New York where the women will perform eight shows from October 10th to the 15th at Shea’s 710 Theatre in Buffalo.
