What Is the Story of Cougar the Musical?
Cougar the Musical centers on three women: Mary-Marie, a confirmed cougar and owner of the local cougar bar; Clarity, a woman working on her thesis in women's studies who is writing about the cougar phenomenon; and Lily, a recent divorcee starting over again. The women come together to form a new community of cougars who take charge of their lives, their happiness and their sexuality. The show becomes like a modern Sex and the CIty or Real Housewives complete with song and by the final song, the audience feels as empowered as the ladies onstage.
The music by Moore along with a handful of gifted songwriters features a delightful mix of catchy pastiche and uplifting ballads.Review by Roma Torre from NY1
This understated production proves surprisingly charming with elegant flow from start to finish under the sure-handed direction of Lynne Taylor-Corbett (a Tony Award nominee in 2000 for direction and choreography in 'Swing!').Review by Peter Santilli from Associated Press
