The characters in The Golden Girls, which aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992, have the most enviable lives on television. They get to share a house in sunny Miami with their best friends, bang dudes all the time, attend an inordinate number of charity balls, and eat cheesecake in the middle of the night. That these pastimes are unapologetically pursued by four women well past fifty made the show a groundbreaker when it debuted — and the premise still feels depressingly radical thirty years later. Australian puppeteer Jonathan Rockefeller gives you a chance to revisit the world of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia with That Golden Girls Show! A Puppet Parody, which celebrates the series using cloth creations of felt and fuzz. An earlier version of the production ran in Sydney and Toronto, but it's since been tinkered with in hopes of fully transporting viewers to the Golden age.
