Set in that sassy Miami house in 1985, 'That Golden Girls Show!' is a brand new show that parodies classic Golden Girls moments - with puppets! Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted put down. 

From Sophia's get-rich-quick schemes, to Rose's tales from St Olaf, Blanche's insatiable hunt for men and the Fountain of Youth, to Dorothy's daily struggle to make sense of her life, manage her roommates all the while fending off a certain, pesky ex-husband, once and for all. Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.

Open: 09/30/16- Close: 10/02/16 WILD CHILD IN THE CITY
Tjasa Ferme combines her European sensibility and Kafka-esque sense of irony with down-to-earth toughness of a New York single girl who has seen it all. It is a story so unbelievable, twisted, and smelly that it must be true. The writer-performer recalls the top 10 experiences that occurred in her roughly 25 different rented apartments in New York. In the first scenario, as reported by WABC’s Eyewitness News, an intruder claims to be Tjasa’s boyfriend. In another, a subletter turns out to be a relapsed heroin addict who, in one of his fits, smears the walls with his own feces. Part dark comedy, part rant with a strong feminist twist, part immersive theater experience, WILD CHILD IN THE CITY proves with grit and wit that in New York City, the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
