  • From the gang that brought you THE FACTS OF LIFE: THE LOST EPISODE comes this  irreverent, yet loving, tribute to The Golden Girls.

    It’s just another day in Miami for those cheesecake-loving gals…until former N*SYNCer Lance Bass moves in next door and his rowdy all-night gay sex parties end up disrupting the girls’ beauty sleep. When Dorthea demands that Bass cut it out, he challenges her to a bet: if the girls win the top prize in the Shady Oaks retirement home talent contest, he’ll stop the parties, but if he wins the girls become his personal cleanup crew. What follows is a singing, dancing farce that could only derive from such an improbable situation.

    The cast features Jamie Richards (Dorothea), Richard Payton (Blanchet), Joe Plambeck (Roz), Jeff Weiner (Sophie), Billy Dixon (Lance), and Rich Wilson (Cubby). The production is under the direction of Joe Bailey.
