Cougar The Musical Prowls On Stage at The Plaza Theatre
May 22 – June 29.
Wednesdays & Sundays at 2 pm, Thursdays & Fridays at 7:30 pm, and Saturdays at 2 pm & 7:30 pm.
Off-Broadway hit features original music, imaginative script.
A trio of women – single, divorced, vulnerable and searching for their identity and self-esteem – are ripe to fall under the life-affirming spell of newfound love and hot younger men in COUGAR THE MUSICAL, running May 22 – June 29 at the Plaza Theatre.
This hilarious musical comedy tells the story of Mary-Marie, a “cougar bar only” proprietor; Lily, the betrayed woman who spurns the younger men advances, and Clarity, the successful businesswoman who left her job to pursue “women’s studies.” Each faces different challenges and benefits in dating younger men (all played by the same male character), and find resolution in their lives through a musical journey of love and laughter. Unlike other ladies’ musicals, COUGAR features original melodies from six composers, along with a script that “reflects considerable imagination and contains a few knowing jokes.” (New York Times)
Starring Margot Moreland as Mairy, Katie Angell Thomas as Lily, Shelley Keelor as Clarity, and Clay Cartland as all the men. Directed by Dodd Loomis and choreographed by Lix DeMarco, with music direction by Mark Galsky, and a live three piece combo.
COUGAR THE MUSICAL runs May 22 – June 29 Wednesdays & Sundays at 2 p.m., Thursdays & Fridays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays at 2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 each, with special group and student rates available. Tickets may be purchased at the Box Office located at 262 South Ocean Blvd Manalapan, FL 33462, on-line at www.theplazatheatre.net or by calling 561-588-1820.
