Due to popular demand, Cindy Williams will extend her run as a guest star in Menopause The Musical® at Harrah’s Las Vegas. Originally scheduled to perform through Labor Day weekend, Williams has received such a positive audience response that show producers have asked her to continue performing through December 16, 2017.
Famed for her role as Shirley Feeney in the iconic television comedy Laverne & Shirley, Williams’ second Vegas run marks the fifth time she has performed in Menopause The Musical®, having previously appeared in the Tampa, Fla., Laguna Beach, Calif., and New Haven, Conn. productions. The actress plays the role of the fifth girlfriend, joining current cast members Vita Corimbi or Kittra Coomer, Earth Mother; Jacquelyn Holland Wright, Soap Star; Lori Legacy, Iowa Housewife; and Lisa Mack, Professional Woman. Monica Heuser understudies all four roles.
In addition to guest starring in Menopause The Musical®, Williams has released her critically-acclaimed book, “Shirley, I Jest!: A Storied Life,” which is now released in paperback, and she also recently filmed an episode of the popular television show, “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.”
“I am having the time of my life performing in Menopause The Musical!” said Williams. “I love this show, this incredibly talented cast and the audiences we get to perform for, and I look forward to calling Vegas home for another few months.”
“The audience has spoken and they want more Cindy Williams!” added one of the show’s producers, Kathi Glist. “It has been such a joy having Cindy in the show and we are so excited that she is extending her run through December.”
