Picture it! Miami, 1985…

“That Golden Girls Show” is a brand new off-Broadway hit that parodies classic “Golden Girls” moments with puppets. Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put-down. This 90-minute comedy is rated PG-15.

From Sophia’s get-rich-quick schemes to Rose’s tales from St. Olaf, Blanche’s insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, and Dorothy’s daily struggle to make sense of her life, devoted fans will fondly remember those four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of the classic television series that ran for seven seasons from 1985 through 1992, totaling 180 hilarious episodes.

Produced by Rockefeller Productions, “That Golden Girls Show” is directed by Michael Hull, written by Doug Kmiotek, and features puppets by Rockefeller Productions. Other credits include David Goldstein (set and lighting design), Nate Edmondson (sound design), Jessica Marie Lorence (puppet supervisor), Gregg Bellón (production supervisor), Mason Huse (associate production manager), TBD (production stage manager), TBD (assistant stage manager), Kelli Argott (marketing director), Krista Robbins (company manager), general management by Theater Mogul/Jill Bowman, exclusive tour direction by Broadway & Beyond Theatricals/Victoria Lang, Ryan Bogner, and Tracey McFarland.
