When you hear the words The Golden Girls, I doubt there is one person whose mind will not travel back to the mid 80’s to early 90’s TV sitcom, that had people all across the globe laughing from beginning to end.
It was definitely a show ahead of its time and paved the way for future shows headed by an entire female cast. The wonderful thing about this story-line was that it was, and still is so relative today.
We get all get old, we all still have our trials and tribulations, our ups and downs…but one thing is for sure; no matter what age you are, you can still have a sense of humor. Just like these 4 mature ladies, all they needed was each other to have a good time, and everything after that was filled with joy and laughter.
The story of the Golden Girls follows 4 women (3 widows and 1 divorcee), Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia, as they all share a house in Miami. What could go wrong? Well, with four very different personalities, the cast had its viewers bent over laughing, as each woman approached the many mysteries that come with getting older, clashing with each other along the way.
Writer Susan Harris was quoted saying, “it was a demographic that had never been approached.” With Rose’s naive, simple nature, Blanche’s man-hungry promiscuous lifestyle, Dorothy’s sarcastic and quick wit, and Sophia’s brazen attitude…the show was a delight for all.
But in 1992, the world sighed sadly…as the monumentally, groundbreaking sitcom came to an end. So what now? Well, thanks to the genius of Joseph Patrick Presents, the girls are coming back to the stage in the form of puppets…in the live-tribute stage production (named appropriately after the series’ theme song)…THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND.
With the same humor of the original series, striking puppets with an uncanny resemblance to the female TV cast and a set that will take you back to the warm, charming home of these 4 single women…this production has already proven itself to be an absolute cracker of a show; with rave reviews coming in from critics all over Toronto.
If you, like myself, are a huge of The Golden Girls and live theatre, then this is the one for you. Get ready to laugh your little heart out and have all your comedy cravings satisfied, as THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND is now performing at Toronto Centre For The Arts from February 10th until March 5th 2017.
The cast promises “an evening of laughter, spectacular put-downs and familiar friends…delivering all the classic dialogue, razor-sharp gags and taboo-breaking stories you’d expect.”
What more could you want? Wait, there’s more! As everyone knows, the 4 memorable ladies always loved to have a gossip and regroup at the kitchen table, over a nice slice of cheesecake. At the Toronto Centre For The Arts, you can join in on the fun, as they are offering VIP seating with your own table, tablecloth and cheesecake included…so you can really enjoy the live experience.
