Cotuit Center for the Arts presents
Muskrat Love: A Celebration of the Songs We Hate to Love

Everyone has a special soft spot in their hearts for the songs they grew up hearing on the radio...even those we hate to love!

Cotuit Center for the Arts is proud to present Muskrat Love, a staged comic revue in two acts. This brand-new original show showcases some of the so-called ‘worst’ songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s: songs like “Muskrat Love,” “You Light Up My Life,” “Sugar, Sugar,” “Copacabana,” “Old Time Rock & Roll,” “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” and SO MANY MORE. Directed by Tedi Marsh and featuring an all-star cast of favorite Cape Cod performers, this is a show you won’t want to miss!

As music director Malcolm Granger notes, “These songs were hits, otherwise we wouldn't know them. The songs aren't forgotten, and they're worthy of attention—even if it's less-than-a-Grammy-award.” Meanwhile, the Center’s Executive Director David Kuehn has been looking forward to Muskrat Love since before the show’s inception. “When Malcolm pitched the idea of the show I instantly visualized the audience singing along to every guilty pleasure we all secretly (or not) love,” he says, adding, “I guarantee you will leave the theater smiling and humming. We have a stellar cast and crew and the kick-ass band we’ve become known for at the Center.”

Curious which ‘bad’ songs made the cut? Maybe one of your old teenage guilty-pleasure favorites? You’ll have to come and enjoy the show to find out!
