Menopause the Musical – Grove Theatre
The international hit show Menopause The Musical will play the Grove Theatre for 16 performances from March 6 – 17. Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. They make fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges, and a sisterhood is created between them as they realize that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.” It is a stage in every woman’s life that is perfectly normal. The cast includes Liz Hyde (Iowa Housewife), Kathy St. George (Soap Star), Margot Moreland (Earth Mother) and Kimberly Ann Harris (Professional Woman). Click Here for tickets or call (909) 920-4343.

In the Heights Needs Kickstarter Love
With its cast of Broadway veterans and talented young Southern California performers ready to take the next step in their careers, IOA Theatricals’ west coast premiere of Lin Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights is poised to be something very special. The show will provide a rare opportunity for California-based performers to shine. Unlike many other professional production companies in Southern California, IOA Theatricals will give local performers the chance to star in a truly Broadway-caliber production alongside elite Broadway talent, thereby enabling them to make crucial connections necessary to kick start their careers. Unfortunately, IOA Theatricals received news recently that the private investor who had agreed to furnish half of the production cost was dropping out of the deal and leaving IOA with a $150,000 shortfall. Since the production has already made major arrangements to feature the original Broadway set and costumes and for original cast members to return for this short engagement, canceling the production is simply not an option. They are asking for the theatrical community’s support to help make this production a success.
