The downtown kids loved Bea Arthur, who stylishly ripped people a new anus as Maude, continued to do so in different caftans in the perpetually re-running Golden Girls, and even survived the sad movie of Mame.
So here comes God’ll Getcha For That: A Bea Arthur Tribute at Dixon Place on July 31, featuring a lineup of performers doing Bea’s best loved numbers, in between anecdotes, film clips, and everyone rolling their eyes and going “Walter!”
It’s free, by the way, but what to wear? According to the invite, “Linen pants, cowl necks, and low boots not required but strongly encouraged.” And caftans!
