After a smashing debut of “Hot Flashbacks” in October, it’s the return of GGNYC! AS SEEN ON the upcoming 2020 Golden Fans at Sea, it’s The Golden Girls musical drag parody for the NEW generation. The girls you love, like you’ve never seen them before. Live singing, dancing, schmacting! Oh my!
Picture it: Cleveland, Christmas 2019.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the store, each department was dripping with Yuletide decor. Sophia was nestled all snug in her bed, while visions of sugar prunes danced in her head. Before traveling to spend the Holidays with their families, Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose participate in a golden gift exchange full of hilarious surprises. But just as they get to the airport a winter storm blows in, leaving them trapped! In an unexpected Charles Dickens twist of events, the three grannies must visit their past, present, and future to save Christmas (and find Sophia)…just in time for turkey lurkey. Lucky audience members may even have a chance to make their stage debut with the bosom buddies and become the next #TokenSophia!
“It’s like vaudeville for the new generation!”
“They had me laughing so hard my cheeks hurt!”
$25 General Admission
$35 VIP – Includes premium front reserved seating, GGNYC swag, and an official #TokenSophia photo following the show with the cast starring YOU as Sophia! We provide the wig, glasses, and handbag. You provide the Sicilian attitude.
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 Christmas 2019 Tour marks the fifth 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, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, 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.
