Description

Live on stage in SF started performances in 2006 in the front parlor of a Victorian Mansion in the Western Addition. The shows quickly became more and more popular with the shows being performed twice annually - for a month every June and for a month each December. As The Golden Girls became more popular, they moved to larger quarters of sold out-runs at Mama Calizo’s Voice Factory and then to CounterPULSE. In 2011 the show moved to the 500-seat Victoria Theatre where it will play for a longer run - 15 performances only. For the past 4 years all shows have sold out.

Episode 1 – “WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DATE MAKES”

The man who stood Dorothy up for her senior prom contacts her and they make a date for the Christmas dance. After learning why he stood her up, Dorothy unleashes her wrath on the person at fault, Sophia. Meanwhile, Blanche goes on a diet in order to keep with her tradition of annually fitting into her wedding dress. (Originally written by Susan Harris, Marc Cherry & Jamie Wooten) (Actor Hal Linden starred as Dorothy’s love interest.)

Episode 2 – “GIRLS JUST WANNA TO HAVE FUN...BEFORE THEY DIE”

It’s the Holiday Season and both Sophia and Rose take advice from Blanche that lands each of them in hot water. Due to an unseasonal drought in St. Olaf, Rose swears to be celibate and Blanche advises her not to tell Miles the truth. While Sophia takes Blanche's tips to lure a man to bed but when she tells him she loves him, he doesn't respond with what she hoped. (Originally written by Susan Harris, Gail Parent & James Valley) (Actor Cesar Romero starred as Tony (Sofia’s love interest.)
