It was over a decade ago when Marietta, Georgia, resident Dan Byrd was first bitten by the acting bug.
The then-8-year-old Byrd went to see a live performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway and was hooked.
Now all grown up and living in Los Angeles, California, Byrd has seen his childhood dream through. The great thing about a name like 'Cougar Town' is that you hear it once and you remember it forever. But there's a connection to the word 'cougar' that means a lot of people are going to be turned off right away by the title alone without even giving the show a chance.
Although the term 'cougar' has become synonymous with older women who date younger men, its predatory image is neither accurate nor acceptable in the opinion of many women tagged with the label.
Nowhere on the website is the word 'cougar' ever used.
As Macmillan says, "It's not empowering to women."She seems to have hit a nerve.
Three years later, the site is so successful she's planning to launch a US version of Toyboy Warehouse in late 2010 in the New York City area.
I spoke with Julia Macmillan about the cougar stereotype, the reasons why it persists even as women reject the term in growing numbers, and whether there's greater cultural acceptance in the UK or the US toward older female/younger male relationships.
Since there's no similar word to describe an older man who dates younger women, many feel it's far from complimentary.
