“Golden Girls LIVE” is a drag parody created by Peter Mac and John Mac in 2003 as a tribute to the famous 80’s sitcom. When the show first hit the stage it played to sold out audiences in the West Village, featuring four characters who could perfectly impersonate the original actresses.
Now, the original cast of “Golden Girls LIVE” are back with an all-new episode, complete with musical numbers. In this latest “lost” episode of The Golden Girls, Dorothy and Sophia try to find time for some mother-daughter bonding away from Rose and Blanche. This production at NYC’s Producers Club will have you humming the theme song all the way home. In fact, the show features several musical numbers including a sing-a-long.
Taking place at Producer’s Club in the Grand Theater, the Off-Broadway show has recently extended its run until 2020. As their website puts it: “This 70-minute show adds to the humor with an all-male cast portraying the silver-haired ladies live on stage as if they had never left their Miami home.” When Ellen DeGeneres asked Betty White about the hilarious production, she said, “They play them better than we did!” And how can we pass up an endorsement like that?
