Cougar the Musical welcomes Mary Mossberg to the cast who will take over the role of Lily beginning September 19, 2012.
Cougar the Musical, created by Donna Moore with direction and choreography by Tony Award Nominee Lynne Taylor-Corbett, began performances on August 10 and opened on August 26, 2012, and has opened up a new block of tickets, now on sale through December 2012 at St. Luke’s Theatre (308 West 46th Street), available through Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
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 sexy, 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.
