Musical Parody Premieres

In THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND: THE MUSICAL, 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 bungalow in Miami. But when gay pop superstar Lance Bass 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!

This wholly unauthorized parody features original music plus parodies of songs from your favorite Broadway musicals including Dreamgirls, Chicago and 9 to 5. Directed by Nick Brennan, the production stars Lavinia Draper (Therapy Thursdays), Chad Ryan, Nick Brennan (Facts of Life: The Lost Episode), Brad Loekle (Sirius XM Radio’s Morning Jolt), Jody Wood and Luke Jones with choreography by Justin Wingenroth and design by Luke Jones.
