Beloved Laverne & Shirley Star Cindy Williams Joins "Menopause The Musical"

Cindy Williams, famed for her role as Shirley Feeney in the iconic television comedy Laverne & Shirley, will join GFour Productions’ Menopause The Musical® at Harrah’s Las Vegas as a guest star this summer.  The longest running scripted musical in Las Vegas history has played 4,200 performances in the city and just celebrated ten years in Las Vegas.

While Williams is making her Vegas debut, this run marks the third time she will perform in Menopause The Musical®, having previously appeared in the Tampa, Florida and Laguna Beach, CA productions.  The actress will play the role of the fifth girlfriend, joining current cast members Vita Cormibi, Earth Mother,  Lori Legasy, Iowa Housewife, Jacquelyn Holland Wright, Soap Star and Lisa Mack, Professional Woman. Monica Heuser understudies all four roles.

After each performance, Williams will greet fans and sign copies of her memoir, “Shirley, I Jest!”, a hilarious and heartfelt book about her life in entertainment.

Menopause The Musical®, “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 at 7:30 p.m. through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., as well as an additional 4 p.m. matinee each Saturday and Monday.  Tickets are priced at $49.99 for orchestra seats, $59.99 for premium seating and $74.50 for VIP seating.
