Any roles for a now mature ingenue soprano -- ran into a former leading lady of mine

at a show I've been doing off-Broadway, and she looked lovely; her kids are grown-up around college, and she's thinking of auditioning again etc. But she was a former Luisa off-Broadway years ago, and I couldn't off-hand think of soprano roles for 40+ ladies. I did suggest she study Barbara Cook's way of belting (safely) "Where's My Shoe?" from "She Loves Me". Any suggestions for shows for ingenue high soprano voices who aren't 20s or 30s any longer? I guess Barbara Cook herself had this problem back in the day.
