If you’re a fan of Sondheim or the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, you won’t want to miss this fundraiser.

Expect elegant clowns, jesters, mimes, and maybe even a magician to walk among you.

Menopause The Musical April 2

Calling the sisterhood! At Menopause The Musical, four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, and more. The musical parody is set to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s and has plenty of laughs in store.
