MILF - The Musical is the hilarious story of Kate - modern housewife, mother and underground fashion blogger “FashionEsther” - whose real life and virtual life collide when she discovers - via FacePage - that her husband Jason is having an affair.
Kate’s half sister Cleo knows all about infidelity - her marriage to a super-successful and philandering plastic surgeon has disintegrated. Despite the good advice of her mother Gloria and BFF Frankie, Cleo’s solution is to whisk Kate off to the other side of the world and to show her she could lead the life she's always dreamed of and teach Jason a lesson. But is that what Kate really wants?
Featuring a contemporary and totally original score that covers blues, disco, pop and even Latin genres, MILF will resonate with any female over 30 who’s ever felt the pressure of juggling work, family and fabulousness!
**MILF would likely be a PG or M-rated musical, depending ultimately on the amount of adult content included. While it explores the current issues around the intrusion of social media and "virtual" world into our real-world relationships and self-concept, it's treatment of these issues is light and humorous.
