The Ultimate Golden Girls Experience!
COMEDY / THEATRE / PUPPETRY
For seven seasons (’85 – ’92), The Golden Girls were the queens of television comedy. The chemistry and comedic talents of Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty flourished thanks to scripts brimming with snappy one-liners and provocative underlying themes.
A quarter century later, life-size puppets, with considerable help from five extraordinarily talented puppeteers, re-create the roles of Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nyland, Blanche Devereaux and Sophia Petrillo. The wisecracks and humour-fuelled, albeit often heated, exchanges continue thanks to a treasure chest of material.
