The lowdown -- Take a girls' night out and laugh alongside women of all ages at Menopause the Musical, a play that takes a humorous look at "the change" that middle-aged women go through. Focusing on four women who meet at a lingerie sale and discover they share something in common -- menopause and all its dreaded symptoms -- this play also includes 25 baby-boomer hit songs with rewritten lyrics, including "I Heard It Thru the Grapevine; You No Longer See 39."
If you go -- Menopause the Musical runs Wednesday-Aug. 5 at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center's M&T; Bank Pavilion, 12 N. Eutaw St. Tickets are $45-$65. Call 410-547-SEAT or go to france-merrickpac.com.
Cirque Du Soleil
The lowdown -- Experience the wild and death-defying acrobatics of Cirque Du Soleil paired with remixed urban tribal beat music at Delirium, coming to the Verizon Center tomorrow through Sunday. Unlike most Cirque Du Soleil performances, Delirium is based on a musical instead of acrobatics. The story line focuses on a man named Bill and his quest to find balance in a world of isolation.
If you go -- Delirium comes to the Verizon Center, 601 F St. N.W., Washington, tomorrow-Sunday. Performances are at 8 p.m. each day with an additional show at 3 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $39.50-$125. Call 410-547-SEAT or go to live nation.com.
