By the time Menopause the Musical was birthed in 2001, Aretha Franklin herself may have been moaning the parody lyrics that bond the four mid-life protagonists in shared misery: "Change, change, change ... change of life!" Created by former ad agency CEO Jeanie Linders and distilled in an Orlando perfume shop that was converted into a 76-seat theater, Menopause was an international sensation, with more than three dozen productions running on three continents by the time it settled into the now-defunct Capri Theatre on Independence Boulevard in 2005. The Charlotte version certainly left its mark, becoming the longest-running show in the city's history. Now, a touring version returns to a classier and larger venue, the Knight Theater, for a five-performance run. So this time around, even more women can flock to the show and empathize with such parodies as "Puff, My God, I'm Draggin'," a show-stopping vibrator song, and, courtesy of Brenda Lee, "I'm Flashing."
