Synopsis: 

In Thank You for Being a Friend four women over 60 (Blanchette, the varicose-veined vixen; Dorthea, the brainy ball-buster; Roz, the lovable airhead; and Sophie, the wisecracking spitfire) are spending their golden years together in a wicker-filled bungalow in Miami. But when gay pop superstar Ricky Martin moves next door, his loud outdoor sex parties keep the quartet of cheesecake-loving retirees awake. The solution pits the gays against the girls at the annual Shady Oaks Retirement Home Talent Show: if the women win, then no more sex parties; if the gays garner top prize, the sassy seniors must serve as the party's clean-up crew. Singing, dancing and hilarity ensues!

    <i>Thank You for Being a Friend</i> a ‘Golden Girls’ Parody

    Ken Jaworowski

    January 23, 2014: To feel the love for “The Golden Girls,” one of the best-written and -acted sitcoms of the ’80s and ’90s, you have only to see the capacity crowd gathered for “Thank You for Being a Friend,” at the Laurie Beechman Theater on Wednesdays. A woman at my table announced before the show that she could recite whole passages from the series. So you have to wonder what that audience takes away from this drag parody, directed by Nick Brennan, which is so raunchy and overwrought, it’s hard to call it affectionate.
