Cindy Williams will extend her run as a guest star in Menopause The Musical at Harrah’s Las Vegas. Originally scheduled to perform from July 7 Aug. 28, Williams has received such a positive audience response that show producers GFour Productions asked her to continue performing for an additional three months through Dec. 3, 2016.
Famed for her role as Shirley Feeney in the iconic television comedy Laverne & Shirley, Williams’ Vegas run marks the third time she has performed in Menopause The Musical, having previously appeared in the Tampa, Fla. and Laguna Beach, Calif. productions. The actress plays the role of the fifth girlfriend, joining current cast members Vita Corimbi, Earth Mother; Jacquelyn Holland Wright, Soap Star; Lori Legacy, Iowa Housewife; and Lisa Mack, Professional Woman. Monica Heuser understudies all four roles.
After each performance, Williams greets fans and signs copies of her memoir, “Shirley, I Jest!,” a hilarious and heartfelt book about her life in entertainment.
“I don’t know who enjoys Menopause The Musical more the audience watching it, or me getting to perform in it with this incredible cast. I love this show!” said Williams.
“We are elated and honored that Cindy Williams will extend her stay with us,” added the show’s producer, Kathi Glist. “She is a delight to work with and audiences love her.”
Menopause The Musical is the longest running scripted musical in Las Vegas history and has played 5,000 performances in the city and just celebrated ten years in Las Vegas. “The Hilarious Celebration of Women and The Change” empowers audiences of all ages with its parodies of classic songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s in a show filled with memorable characters, optimism and laughter. Hot flashes, mood swings and weight gain no subject is off limits for the show’s stars, who meet in a department store while shopping for a black lace bra. The 90-minute production inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine celebrates sisterhood as the cast and audience bond, rejoicing that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.”
Since 2001 the show has touched over 11 million women worldwide and has partnered with Susan G. Komen to raise funds to fight breast cancer.Menopause The Musical has performances Monday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., as well as an additional 4 p.m. matinee each Saturday and Monday.
