THE MUSICAL’ FOR
‘CHANGE’ OF PACE PHOTOS: DENISE RITCHIE
BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer
1 The hilarious musical about
a subject once considered
too taboo to do, “Menopause:
The Musical,” returns to the Lyric
Theatre in Stuart for a two-night
gig, this Friday and Saturday, Jan.
5-6. Employing hysterically funny
parodies of 25 hits from the Baby
Boomer Era, this show looks at
the positive and negative aspects
of The Change, those notorious
hot flashes, night sweats, exot-
ic food cravings. We of a certain
age have been there, done that,
lived to tell the tale. Since Jeanie
Linders’ show debuted in Orlando
in 2001, it has toured all over the
world, and is still going strong,
putting a welcome, comic twist
on a subject about which some
40 million women can relate at
any given moment in time. And,
by the way, this is not just a chick
show: men get as big a kick out of
“Menopause: The Musical” as we
women do. Show times are Friday
at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m.

day, the Lyric Theatre will pres-

The national touring company of “A Night with Janis
Joplin” come to Fort Pierce’s Sunrise Theatre Jan. 13. Kel-
ly McIntyre, who plays Joplin, spoke recently about what it
means to play a legend.
“I think most of her music is timeless,” McIntyre said.
“People still enjoy it. She was a woman with attitude who
was ahead of her time and it appeals a lot today.”
Joplin’s voice rang with the raw pain she felt, and she
drew upon some great blues and R&B singers like Aretha
Franklin and Bessie Smith for inspiration.
“There was a lot of pain,” she said. “I think it was relat-
able to women. Her voice was very raw. You can feel what
she’s feeling. Raw is the best word. It’s a visceral singing
voice that you feel throughout your body. It was not pretty,
per se, but it was very real.”
Joplin grew up in Texas and had a good relationship
with her family. However, like so many creative people, she
didn’t feel as though she fit in.

SUBLIME ‘NUTCRACKER’ NAILS VERO VIBE
Ballet Vero Beach’s all-new “Nutcracker on the In-
dian River” is a big-league production full of small-
town charm – Vero’s charm. This may not be the first
themed Nutcracker to recast the famous story ballet’s
plot for its hometown audience, but the idea that
struck artistic director Adam Schnell – to have the
creatures of Vero’s shoreline fill little Marie’s dream
world – was a brilliant one.
Even more brilliant was having costume designer
Travis Halsey – Schnell’s old friend – design the cos-
tumes. Halsey himself has joined the ballet big leagues,
designing for Miami City Ballet and New York City Bal-
let, among many others. I couldn’t help but feel the cast
was inspired just filling Halsey’s gorgeous designs.
It probably didn’t hurt that the 23 professional danc-
ers, which Ballet Vero Beach shares with Omaha-based
Ballet Nebraska, was missing out on
MICHELLE sub-zero temperatures during Nut-
GENZ cracker’s two-day run in Florida. But
in the five years of performances
REVIEW here, I have never seen more joy em-
anate from the dancers. In that time,
the company has also grown noticeably more polished.
If Schnell saw that coming, joining forces with what was
then his brand-new ballet company and Nebraska’s
nearly new one, then he was right to wait until now to
give Vero this major production.
Schnell sets his ballet in New York, a century ago.
The opening drop resembles a vintage postcard, with
a locomotive roaring past an oval cutout of the lagoon
framed by mangroves. That drop and others were creat-
ed by Holly Porch, familiar to the Vero theater scene as a
graphic artist at Riverside Theatre. Porch was contracted
by Bungalow Scenic Studios, an Orlando firm that creat-
ed the sets.
The drop rises on a parlor on Christmas Eve 1919,
with a family about to be invited on a train ride to Flori-
da. It was around that time that Vero was first being vis-
ited by sun-seeking northerners descending on Henry
Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway, the Brightline of its
The family’s ritual is interrupted by news that the ec-
centric Uncle Drosselmeyer is on his way to escort them
to Vero Beach. Played by Matthew Carter, ballet master
of Ballet Nebraska and a longtime friend of Schell’s, the
mischievous, kid-loving Drosselmeyer brings instant
