ANNOUNCEMENT:Golden Girls LIVE! Has been extended in NYC through January 2020. The Spring/Summer show schedule is Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday at 8PM and Sunday at 4pm.
Audiences loved the long-running NBC sitcom The Golden Girls, tuning in weekly to laugh at the often bawdy antics and hilarious quips of geriatric roomies Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia. The show won a Primetime Emmy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, and an Emmy for each actress over the course of its seven seasons.
16 Years Ago (2003) Golden Girls LIVE was created by Peter Mac and John Mac as a loving tribute in the style of Brady Bunch LIVE. In fact they created an even more loving drag PARODY of everyone's favorite sitcom. Which played to sold out audiences at the now shuttered Rose's Turn in the West Village. The shows uses spot on impersonations of the original Actresses as source material (they play Estelle Getty and Beatrice Arthur respectively) and creating original parody situations, they realized that there was an audience to relive and attend a live taping of this revered sitcom.
The Macs then toured the country coast to coast (NYC to LA to Boston to Las Vegas now back to NYC) and to date over 1,550 performances. To celebrate their 15 Anniversary of creating The Original Golden Girls LIVE: On Stage! they have decided to bring her home to NYC for the first time in 15 years. The 'Lost' Christmas Episode written by Peter Mac gives the fans what they have always wanted - the reunion they never got - and no Golden Palace does jot count. So come see what reunites these four amazing women, and be prepared to laugh and cry just like it was 1992.
So here comes the loving parody Off-Broadway to Producers Club in the Grand Theatre opened April 13, 2018 and currently selling tickets through January 13, 2019. 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.
