MID-LIFE! The Crisis Musical

By Bob Walton & Jim Walton

Directed by Michelle Fritsche

MID-LIFE! takes a look at the "joys" of growing older and strikes a chord with anyone, regardless of age. A series of scenes and sketches poke fun at the frustrations of mammograms, love handles weekend warriors and proctology exams. The musical celebrates forgetfulness, reading glasses and menopause, but also touches on the sentimental wisdom that the later years afford us. MID-LIFE! is an hilarious romp with an honest humor about the trials and tribulations of the unavoidable aging process. Welcome to MID-LIFE!
