Everyone's favorite Golden Girl comes to ZACH for a humorous on-stage conversation, up close and personal, with ZACH Artistic Director Dave Steakley. Together the pair re-visits the loves and losses, hits, flops, laughter, and tears that have shaped Ms. McClanahan's life as an actress.
Before Carrie Bradshaw and her cosmo-sipping friends on Sex and the City or the Desperate Housewives of Wisteria Lane, there were The Golden Girls - four sassy seniors living out their latter years in Miami Beach. Rue McClanahan, who starred as Southern vixen Blanche Devereaux, shares her personal story that is every bit as colorful as the characters she plays. From growing up in Oklahoma to her arrival in New York City, from her time studying with theatre legend Uta Hagen to her first television role on All in the Family, from The Golden Girls years to her recent starring role in Wicked on Broadway, Rue shares intimate stories about her extraordinary life and all the men along the way! Rue also answers questions from the audience, and afterwards will sign copies of her new memoir, My First Five Husbands, And The Ones Who Got Away.
