Friday Feature of the Week

For the past seventeen years, a humorous musical production called 'Menopause the Musical' has been getting laughs from, and for good reason, a mainly female audience.  The national tour has brought the show to Asheville.  It just so happens that the woman behind the musical, Jeanie Linders lives today in Western North Carolina.  She's the guest of the Friday Feature that aired August 10, 2018.
