Broadway hit makes UK debut at Belgrade

Coventry Editorial 14th May, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

AN OFF-BROADWAY smash hit musical is making its UK premier at The Belgrade Theatre this weekend.

Following its success at New York’s St Luke’s Theatre, ‘Cougar the Musical’, will make its British debut at the Coventry theatre on Saturday, May 16.

The ‘raunchy and insightful new musical’ follows the lives of three women ‘of a certain age’ – proving you are never too old to live your life.

Donna Moore, the show’s writer, said: “When I first heard the term ‘Cougar’, I thought, ‘How come we have to place a derogatory name on an older woman?’

“I wanted to write a play that humanized the cougar which showed that women come in all shapes and sizes and that each woman is special no matter what.

“My thesis statement is that a woman who dates a younger man should be called a woman.

“If nothing else, I want men and women who come to see this show to leave with their spirits uplifted, a song in their heart and perhaps, a racy story to share with their friends.”

Starring West End Star, Dawn Hope, as high-flying academic Clarity, the multi-talented cast of three fabulous females (and one very brave man) promises a ‘riotous’ night out at the theatre.

‘Cougar the Musical’ is on the prowl in the B2 auditorium at the Belgrade from Saturday, May 16 until Saturday, June 6.
