In Honor of Off-Broadway's That Golden Girls Show!, 15 of The Golden Girls Most Theatrical Moments
August 15th, 2016

Arguably the best sitcom ever on TV (arguably because if you disagree, I’m going to start an argument), The Golden Girls comes to the stage in That Golden Girls Show!—A Puppet Parody, which begins performances at off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre on September 19. Yup, it's puppets acting out your favorite GG moments—what more could you ask for?!
Cue the long edit of the theme.
The series’ original quartet of leading ladies was comprised of three Broadway veterans— Bea Arthur (Mame, Fiddler on the Roof, Threepenny Opera), Estelle Getty (Torch Song Trilogy) and Rue McClanahan (California Suite, Jimmy Shine, Sticks and Bones)—so very often over the show’s seven-year-run theatrical nuggets of gold would be sprinkled throughout episodes.
Below, we celebrate the girls’ New York puppet run with 15 legendary songs, dances and dramatic readings from The Golden Girls.
