Inspired by The Golden Girls, the beloved Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning sit-com 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 Miami bungalow. 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.

The show consists of an MC who looks like a washed up burlesque dancer, a 40-something sword swallower, a male juggler and one female performer who performs two burlesque dances. If you have nothing else to do you might consider checking it out at the reduced Goldstar cost. In my opinion a $5 trip to the Slipper Room is more scandaleous and entertaining.
