Picture it: Tampa, 2019. That’s when the Straz Center for the Performing Arts added “That Golden Girls Show! A Puppet Parody” to its upcoming season.
“Get ready for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down,” the Straz’s press release reads. “Join the Girls 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 and Dorothy’s daily struggle to make sense of her life.”
Fans of the show will fondly reflect on the beloved sitcom, but the Straz added that it’s also first-timer friendly. “This will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series,” they advise.
