Inspired by The Golden Girls, the beloved Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning sitcom of the '80s and '90s, Thank You For Being a Friend returns to the stage by popular demand. In this hilariously unauthorized musical parody, four women over the age of 60 -- the promiscuous Blanchette, the ball busting Dorthea, the ditzy Roz and the bitingly sarcastic Sophie (all played here by beautifully bewigged men) -- live relatively peacefully together in a bungalow in Miami. But when neighbor Ricky Martin's noisy outdoor sex parties begin interrupting the ladies' cheesecake feasts, a battle begins that can only be settled in one place: the annual Shady Oaks Retirement Home Talent Show.

Bette Midler tribute artist Donna Maxon revisits the glorious 70's with her new cabaret show Bette & Barry: Back To The Bathhouse co-written by Maxon and director Michael Schiralli. Maxon stars as the Divine Miss M, performing a hilariously bawdy act of tunes, monologues, and jokes. The show co-stars musical director Fonda Feingold as Barry Manilow, and the duo proudly pays homage to the partnership that Midler and Manilow began at New York’s Continental Baths in 1970.
Bette & Barry: Back To The Bathhouse is a theatrical imagining of current-day Midler and Manilow returning for “one more show, for old times sake” at the legendary Continental Bathhouse. Incorporating songs from throughout both Midler’s career ("Wind Beneath My Wings," "Delta Dawn," "Friends," and more) and Manilow’s ("Copacabana," "Looks Like We Made It," "Mandy," and others), the banter between the pair touches on highlights of their career, including a touching reminiscence of friends from their bathhouse days lost to AIDS. While Maxon has a long career as a Bette Midler tribute artist, this show marks the theatrical debut of Fonda Feingold (a woman) as Barry Manilow —- America's foremost professional Barry Manilow drag king!
