Thank You For Being a Friend: The Golden Girls Stage Show Is Coming To Grand Rapids
Thank you for being a friend 🎶
The Golden Girls have been joining us in our living rooms over over 30 years, and now West Michiganders will have the chance to see them portrayed on stage.
You won't even have to book a ticket to St. Olaf to enjoy the fun, because Golden Girls: The Laughs Continue arrives at DeVos Performance Hall for an exclusive limited engagement, June 8th through 11th.
According to their release:
Miami’s sassiest seniors have returned for one more hurrah. It’s 2023, and we find Sophia out on bail, after being busted by the DEA for running a drug ring for retirees. Blanche and Rose have founded CreakN, a thriving sex app for seniors. And Dorothy is trying to hold it all together, with help from a new (much) younger sex-crazed lover. Golden Girls: The Laughs Continue allows audiences to relive the heartfelt hilarity of the four ladies who never stopped being best friends.
Golden Girls: The Laughs Continue is a professional stage show unlike any other Golden Girls tribute that you might have experienced. The play is written by Robert Leleux, author of The Memoirs of a Beautiful Boy and The Living End. His work has also appeared in The New York Times and The New York Times Magazine, and his other plays have been produced across the country. Direction by Eric Swanson, who was the co-founder and Executive Director of The Detroit Actors’ Theatre Company. The cast includes Ryan Bernier as Dorothy, Vince Kelley as Blanche, Adam Graber as Rose, Christopher Kamm as Sophia, and Jason Bowen as Stanley/Troy. The production is produced by Murray & Peter Present.
So if you're a fan of the classic TV show, or looking for an excuse to binge and catch up now, this musical is for you!
They're also offering a V.I.P. meet and greet experience for super fans of the show who want to meet the actors playing their favorite classic characters. Tickets can be purchased on the DeVos Performance Hall website beginning Friday, February 24 at 10AM.
