Waist Watchers The Musical!

The Broward Stage Door Theatre presents the musical comedy Waist Watchers The Musical!. Written by producer Alan Jacobson, the show originally premiered in October of 2007 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre under the name Food Fight! A Musical Comedy for Waist Watchers. Set in Cook’s Women’s Gym, the show takes a lighthearted look at four adult women dealing with assorted body image issues by using some 25 popular songs with parody lyrics—in the same vein as Menopause the Musical.

Waist Watchers The Musical! covers issues like dieting, exercise, plastic surgery, sex over the age of forty, and the relentless search for a positive self-image. Writer/producer Alan Jacobson has cleverly rewritten the lyrics to popular songs to suit the subject at hand. Included are songs such as “Botox Queen” to the tune of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” “I Hope I Lose It” to the tune of “I Hope I Get It” from A Chorus Line, “Viagra” to the tune of “Maria” from West Side Story, and “I Feel My Butt Squeeze” to the tune of Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move.” The musical has developed a bit of a cult following at other venues.  When it ran at The Plaza Theatre in Manalapan two years ago it became the longest running musical in south Florida in over ten years. 

Waist Watchers The Musical!  is scheduled to appear at the Broward Stage Door Theatre through July 10 – August 16, 2015. The theater is located at 8036 W. Sample Rd in Coral Springs, Florida. The Stage Door Theatre is a not-for-profit professional theatre company hiring local and non-local nonunion actors and actresses. Theatre location in Ft. Lauderdale are open year round.
