The Golden Girls:The Real Story

Presented by Empire Stage at Empire Stage

WHAT MOTHER wants her grown son to move back home so he can pursue his dream of being a stand-up comic? Certainly not Dorothea ….who was enjoying her Florida retirement…. living in MIami Beach with her live-in-love and two girlfriends! Believe it or not, this is the REAL story of The Golden Girls — who skyrocketed to fame in in 1985 with their hit TV show. Two years before they hit the airwaves, they were introduced to America by local playwright Ginger Reiter (The Jackie Mason Musical) ….. who told their tale in her play at The Barcelona Hotel in Miami Beach. Ginger’s hilarious show was hand-delivered to some Hollywood bigwigs – and the next thing you know, the Golden Girls story was swept away from her. Come see The Golden Girls as they really were …..with one outrageous scene updated by local playwright Ronnie Larsen.
