Woodlawn Pointe Pays Homage to Golden Girls with New Parody Starring Drag Queens


With nearly all its cast members having long kicked the bucket (save for the incomparable 96-year-old Betty White), The Golden Girls is one 1980s sitcom that will probably not get a reboot. That may be a good thing if we consider the fate of the recently rebooted and then cancelled Roseanne.

But for those hellbent on getting their Golden Girls fix, a new play by the local theater company Killer Productions might just hit the spot. Directed by Jose DeHoyos and written by Dave Cortez, Stay Golden! A Golden Girls Parody revives classic moments from the beloved sitcom. But there’s a twist: The female roles will be played by actors in drag. Starring local drag starlet Kristi Waters as Blanche and Greg Hinojosa as Rose, Stay Golden! looks to please both new and devoted fans of the classic TV show while paying homage to its original cast.

$10-$20, 8pm Fri Jun 15-Sat Jun 17, 4pm Sun, Woodlawn Pointe, 702 Donaldson Ave., (210) 468-2787, facebook.com/killerproductionssa.
