Cougar The Musical unleashes three divine but disillusioned women who develop a taste for hot, young men. They let their inner cougar roar and purr, finding self-love and empowerment in the process. The sexy, ferocious cast of three fabulous-over-forty women and one multi-talented boy toy sing and dance their way through a satiating range of original songs, from grinding blues, to doo-wop, to pop to "Julio," a romantic ballad, sung to a vibrator. Hilarious, soulful and heartwarming, Cougar the Musical is a madcap ride from Cougar Bar, to nail salon, to boudoir, and back as the women learn to say "yes" to getting older, “yes” to trust and friendship and “yes" to proving that love is ageless.
"It is filled with original melodies...The script reflects considerable imagination and contains a few knowing jokes." - New York Times
"“Like a woman who tries to have it all, Cougar The Musical has a lot going on. The 90-minute off-Broadway tuner is funny, raucous, sweetly sentimental and romantic. And women, mostly women of a certain age, are likely to fall under its life-affirming spell.” - NY1
“Cougar the Musical is a fun, fast-paced, intelligent, sexy show (with fine direction and choreography byLynne Taylor-Corbett) that could have a long run at the St. Luke’s (or any other Off-Broadway house), not the least of which because it should be extremely popular with middle-aged women tourists looking for a guilty pleasure they can take back home and talk about with their friends. Heck, if my wife lets me, I may even go back a few more times just to watch those would-be cougar ladies in the audience enjoy themselves. Who knows? They may even think I’m still cute enough that they’ll want to pinch my cheeks—all four of them.” - Broadway World
Cougar the Musical premiered Off-Broadway at St. Luke's Theatre in 2012.
