Drama Desk nominee Jonathan Rockefeller will debut his new tribute show That Golden Girls Show! – A Puppet Parody, at Union Square’s DR2 Theatre in September. The show uses puppets to parody classic moments from the long-running, popular TV series.
The limited run of That Golden Girls Show! – A Puppet Parody will begin performances September 19 and officially open October 3. Performances are scheduled to play through December 11.
“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, to Dorothy's daily struggle to make sense of her life, manage her roommates all the while fending off a certain, pesky ex-husband, once and for all,” detail production notes for the world premiere. “Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.”
Rockefeller’s earlier Golden Girls-themed parody show, Thank You For Being a Friend, sold out in Australian and Canada where it garnered rave reviews. It is currently playing at Toronto’s Al Green Theatre, where it is currently playing.
