The Golden Girls Musical Parody will return to New York City for a three-week Pride edition at HERE, June 19-July 6. The show is written and directed by Nick Brennan, who also plays Rose.

The company will also be made up of Josh Warr as Blanche, Robert Hooghkirk as Dorothy, and Lavinia Draper as Sophia. The creative team includes set design by Tonae Mitsuhashi with additional set pieces by Michael Harbeck, costume design by Ryan J. Moller, make-up design by Clay Smith, lighting design by David Palmer, sound design by Doug Repetti, projection design by Jane Parisi and David Palmer, animated opening credits design by Ryan Duff, and orchestrated musical tracks by Adam Gubman and Andy Peterson.

In the show, Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia are getting ready for the annual Shady Pines Retirement Home Gay Pride Talent Show when down on his luck star Ricky Martin moves in next door. His wild, all night, salsa sessions distract the ladies from getting their much-needed rehearsal time. What ensues is a hilarious feud that can only end with one act crowned as the most talented "queen(s)" of Shady Pines.
