“Cougars” Take Over NYC!

Step into the St. Luke’s Theatre on 46th Street, take a sip of the cool Cougartini you’ll be served, and settle in to enjoy a show unlike any other you’ve ever seen. It’s about cougars! No, not the vicious and strong jungle cat, but that’s probably not the vision that first came to your mind. Instead, it was probably a group of older women looking to chase down some younger, “innocent” men. And that’s exactly what you’ll get when you go see “Cougar the Musical.”

Here you’ll see Catherine Porter playing the part of Lily; Brenda Braxton donning the role of Clarity; and Babs Win, who plays Mary-Marie. These three women spend their days talking about how old they are (“I’d like to start a social media site called ‘Facelift Book,” says Lily at the beginning of the show. And they spend their nights running after all their “prey.” That mainly comes in the form of Danny Bernardy, who plays a multitude of young male characters including Buck, Twilight Dude, Bourbon Cowboy, and Naked Peter.

Together, this brilliant cast puts on a show that includes raunchy (and humorous) dance and singing numbers; and their one-liners play off each other beautifully. But at the bottom of it all, is a pretty serious message showing the double standard set for men and women when they date people who are much younger.

“Cougars the Musical” is playing at St. Luke’s Theatre until November 4 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays with a Sunday matinee.
