There’s a Golden Girls puppet show coming to New York City, meaning life is obviously heading in a good direction.
It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a gay, I am going to assume that you know what The Golden Girls is. On the off chance that you don’t, just picture a way-before-its-time TV show in the 80s and 90s about four single old women living together in Miami, prancing around town in silk and shoulder pads, burning each other so hard that it’s surprising any of them are still alive. Yes, The Golden Girls was Sex and the City, way before Sex and the City was even an idea. Now there is a Golden Girls puppet show coming to the New York, and come hell or high water, I am going to be one of the first people to see it.

It’s opening on September 19 at the DR2 Theatre in Union Square, and will be a full-puppetry parody of classic moments from the show, relived through Jim Henson-like puppets. Drama Desk nominee Jonathan Rockefeller created the show after huge successes in Australia and Canada with another Golden Girls parody show called Thank You For Being a Friend. If you have ever seen Avenue Q, just imagine that, but with more “jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down.”
WE ALL WIN. HUMANITY IS FINALLY MOVING FORWARD.

The Golden Girls puppet show is something the world needs, so if you are looking for a fun night out with “girls, gays, or grannies” (I can’t take credit for that line, it comes from the show’s website), you should probably go see this when it opens. Expect to see me in the front row. I’ll be there, tearing directly into my shoulder pads.
