Direct from Off-Broadway, it’s The Golden Girls musical drag parody for the NEW generation.
Picture it: Chicago, October 2019. Sophia Petrillo has gone missing! Your favorite pals and confidants Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose must travel down the road and back again across America to find her. Through a series of hilarious “hot flashbacks”, these hip old grannies take you on a musical journey through The Golden Girls’ favorite moments. One lucky audience member may even have a chance to make their stage debut with the bosom buddies and become the next #TokenSophia. Live singing! Dancing! (Chicago) Bears! Oh My! Toto, we’re not in Miami anymore, sugar.
“It’s like vaudeville for the new generation!”
“They had me laughing so hard my cheeks hurt!”

The Golden Gays NYC (or GGNYC) burst onto the scene in 2017- first at RuPaul’s DragCon then at the famed Rue-La-Rue Cafe. What began as a flash mob extravaganza has skyrocketed to sold-out engagements, tours, and cruises all over New York City and beyond. In the summer of 2018, their hit musical “Hot Flashbacks” premiered to rave reviews Off-Broadway at Theatre Row. You can frequently find the girls at The Laurie Beechman Theatre, New York’s premier destination for queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race. Their Midwest 2019 Tour marks the fourth successful GGNYC tour, each expanding their reach further across America. First, “Hot Flashbacks” in 2018 followed by their Christmas spectacular “Thank Yule For Being A Friend”, then their summer Pride smash “The Golden Games” has played to enthusiastic audiences in New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Rochester, Atlantic City, Cumberland (MD), New Hope (PA), and Asbury Park (NJ), where their brunch shows at The Asbury Hotel have become an iconic staple of the community. Look for the GGNYC booth at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC every September. The ladies are breaking into the Florida circuit this December when “Thank Yule For Being A Friend” plays a two week residency at the Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale. You can also catch GGNYC sailing on the high seas with Celebrity cruises: first in August with Vacaya, then in February 2020 with Flip Phone Events’ “Golden Fans at Sea”.
The Golden Gays NYC stars Jason B. Schmidt (as Dorothy), Andy Crosten (as Blanche), and Gerry Mastrolia (as Rose) along with Musical Director, Mason Griffin. A musical parody, their shows consist of live singing and dancing, along with hilarious sketches from the television show’s most memorable moments.
