Cougar The Musical by Donna Moore, 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.


The cast includes: Danny Bernardy (Off Broadway: Every Girl Gets Her Man, Iphigenia Crash Land Falls), Brenda Braxton (Broadway: Smokey Joe's Cafe, Tony Nomination, Chicago, Dream Girls, Jelly's Last Jam; Cats, Legs Diamond), Catherine Porter (Broadway: Next to Normal, London 's West End Sunset Boulevard, Tonight's the Night, Only the Lonely), Babs Winn (Off Broadway: Love is Where You Find It, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, Take This Show and Shove It, Lola Victoria's Monday Marquee).
