"Menopause" as Metaphor?

"Menopause the Musical is a version of Springtime for Hitler, the show that shouldn't have been a hit. I'm thinking of a moneyspinner called Prostate Pandemonium... Wouldn't it be empowering to see ageing men living their urinary chaos out loud, being upfront and honest about their humiliations, dressing in purple, high-kicking and wetting themselves?"

- One Brit's bemused take on one of our lesser US theatrical exports. (Warning: do turn your "mute" on before clicking.)

Must admit I had never read so much detail about the show. The horror, the horror.

Of course, there's also Hats! a musical based on the Red Hat Society....

... and Denver is proud, proud, I tell you, to have shepherded both musicals through their premieres.
