Cougar The Musical
By Donna Moore
The lives of Clarity, Lilly and Mary-Marie cross as they open their eyes to possibilities and discover a new sense of self-worth when they find that younger men are attracted to them … and vice versa!
“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
