Set in that sassy Miami house in 1985, this brand-new show parodies classic moments from the beloved sitcom 'The Golden Girls'—with puppets! More…
An evening of cheesecake, laughter, Jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down. Devoted fans and first-timers alike will experience the classic TV series on stage, including Sophia's get-rich-quick schemes, Rose's St. Olaf tales, Blanche's insatiable hunt for men, and Dorothy's daily struggle to keep her roommates in check while fending off her pesky ex-husband once and for all. All characters are portrayed by 'Avenue Q'-style puppets, with the puppeteers visible.
See it if you want to imagine, amidst the perfectly recreated set, expertly crafted puppets & accurate portrayals, what a fun homage it could've been.
Don't see it if you expect the same ratio of laughs per minute as the tv show; you expect a parody. (The writing's as toothless as Sophia w/o her dentures.)
See it if If you want to have a fun evening full of laughs and enjoy puppetry at its' best see this show. And of course the actors are top-notch too!!
Don't see it if If you want to see something serious or dark.
See it if you're a massive Golden Girls fan. (And this is the only reason to see it.) It's really fun to see the puppet mannerisms. The cast is great.
Don't see it if you're looking for something really clever or witty. This ain't Avenue Q. There are fun GG references but the dull story line really drags.
See it if You have a good sense of high camp and love the Golden Girls and want to have a great time.
Don't see it if Silliness and campiness don't float your boat. But I found it an unexpected hoot!
See it if you're interested in it. It's fun, but too long. They could cut 20-30 minutes of the show, and it'd be much better. It's silly fluff.
Don't see it if you have no desire to see it, you hate puppets, you don't like The Golden Girls, you want to actually see a good show.
See it if The puppet concept was great..first two scenes were funny not enough profanity, great acting & singing, Entertaining.
Don't see it if If you didn't like the Golden girls & don't like puppets.
See it if it is for people who support homo sexuality and want a forum. The leads are 4 men dressed as the girls. Some are better than others.
Don't see it if Very sexual and against Trump. The story is very fluffy
See it if You enjoyed the Golden Girls and wondered what would happen if Avenue Q took over
Don't see it if You are looking for a bright and refreshing take on the Golden Girls. This version is remix of old episodes without the same twinkle.
See it if you can get a good discount. Not the rollicking good time I expected nor even the affectionate parody this beloved show deserves.
Don't see it if you're expecting something like "Avenue Q." Aside from a handful of saucy words and mild innuendos, it's not nearly as edgy or funny.
See it if you love puppets and want to unplug your brain for ninety minutes.
Don't see it if you'll be frustrated by a tremendous missed opportunity here to have done something genuinely funny, insightful, or surprising.
See it if you enjoy the Golden Girls and puppetry. If you're a fan of the t.v. show the play is like two or three episodes strung together.
Don't see it if you dislike the Golden Girls. You want to see something fast paced. Dislike sitcoms. You expect to be laughing constantly.
See it if You love The Golden Girls! This is for the true fans, not the mildly acquainted. Also if you like shows set in the 80s!

See it if are a big fan of the Golden Girls show. They did a great job of capturing the essence of the show and the characters especially Dorothy!!
Don't see it if you are expecting the funniest show ever. A little too long for my opinion. Basically a 90 minute episode of the show, but very funny.
See it if You're a fan of the show. Actors playing Dorothy and Blanche were great. Blending new jokes into old ones taken straight from the show.
Don't see it if Show drags a little -- 30 minute episode stretched into a play. Puppeteers slightly distracting from the puppets at times.
See it if You are a HUGE Golden Girls fan and you feel you SHOULD see it because of that.
Don't see it if You don't want to be disappointed inexecution & character choices. Except for Dorothy, the rest did not capture the originals (for me).
See it if Your a fan of the Golden Girls from TV or you like guys in Drag.
Don't see it if You are expecting a Broadway production with sets or like shows that are longer than 70 minutes
