Menopause Strikes Again

I was House Managing again tonight.

A couple arrived almost 2 hours early and were sitting in the lobby having drinks.

As the lobby began to fill up with other patrons, the husband called over my Usher Captain.

"Why," asked the husband innocently, "are there so many more women than men here tonight?"

"Well, I'd say it's because this is Menopause, the Musical," replies my Usher Captain, and he proceeds to explain to the husband what the show is about.

"Really!?!? My wife told me it was about Minneapolis!" exclaims the husband. "No wonder she wanted me to have this beer."

My hand to Zod, Minneapolis. You just can't make this shit up.

So he couldn't, like, READ the difference between 'Menopause' and 'Minneapolis' on the marquee, poster, tickets, etc.?

Hey, can I quote this on the PopSmart blog? Menopause is being held over in Atlanta (again).

I guess he's one of those men who lets his wife do all the reading in the family.

Be my guest, just share the link with me when it is posted?

Also, my mom was there last night.

So what did she think of the show?

Ha! What was his wife's reaction to this exchange?

Sadly I did not hear about that.

Sweet shrieking Jesus, that is hilarious. I think I'd have died laughing.

It was close. My Captain and I would just look at each other for the rest of the night and go "Minneapolis?!?!" and then just crack up.

I am actually the TD for Menopause: the Musical, though not the company that's producing in Alaska. I was linked here by a friend in Minneapolis.

The male patrons aren't usually quite so clueless. But they do usually need a few beers.

Hello and welcome!

We've had some interesting men in the crowds so far. I'm working again tonight and I'm rather looking forward to it. I'm afraid the Symphony is going to be so boring in comparison next week!

I'm just now getting around to your theater-specific posts, and I couldn't go on to the next one without telling you how funny this is. It would make a great party joke -- how many times have you told this story since then?

I got a lot of mileage out of it when it first happened but I don't tell it as much anymore. Kind of like the Great Toilet Incident of Christmas Carol.
