Cougar the Musical, which is directed by Tony nominee Lynne Taylor-Corbett, officially opened in its Off-Broadway premiere Aug. 26 at 2 PM following previews that began Aug. 10 at St. Luke's Theatre.

The open-ended production features Danny Bernardy, Brenda Braxton, Catherine Porter and Babs Winn.

Cougar The Musical, which was penned by Donna Moore, "unleashes three divine but disillusioned women who develop a taste for hot, young men," according to production notes. "They let their inner cougar roar and purr, finding self-love and empowerment in the process. The sexy, ferocious cast of three fabulous-over-40 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."

Here's a look at the opening night:
