Written by the creator of the smash hit Menopause: The Musical, The D* Word is a hilarious musical comedy about the frustrations and triumphs of the single life, told from the point of view of four women who bond of drinks after a humiliating night of speed dating. The D* Word of the title actually has multiple meanings: ditched, dumped, divorced, and dating, and the hilarious show explores all of these themes with equal doses of insight and wit, with a soundtrack comprised of some of the biggest pop hits of all time.
The four main characters (a middle aged powerbroker breaking over a decade over self-imposed celibacy, a mother of two dumped for a younger version of herself, a sexy mistress recently dumped by her older boyfriend, and a girl in her twenties who was engaged to her fiancée for six years before he revealed a relationship-ending secret) come together and form strong friendships over strong cocktails as they share war stories from the battlefields of singledom. We follow each character through their many funny and awkward misadventures swimming in the hostile waters of the dating pool, and root for each of them to find love and happiness in the end.
The witty dialogue and on the money observations about the dating scene are punctuated by energetic and hilarious musical numbers set to pop hits like Linda Ronstadt’s You’re No Good, Carrie Underwood’s Before He Cheats, David Lee Roth’s Just a Gigolo, Bonnie Tyler’s Holding out for a Hero, Nazareth’s Love Hurts, Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive, Donna Summer’s Hot Stuff, Madonna’s Like a Virgin, Lesley Gore’s You Don’t Own Me, Nicki Minaj’s Turn Me On, and Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger.
Sure to be as big a success as the global smash Menopause the Musical, The D* Word at The LVH explores the painfully hilarious world of dating from four very different points of view and reveals that the most important relationships in our lives are actually our friendships… and it does all that set to a catchy soundtrack of pop hits that will have audiences both laughing and dancing in their seats.
