From 1985-1992, the hit NBC sitcom Golden Girls let us share the lives of Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia. Now, 30 years after the show premiered, Alley Repertory Theater brings them back... sort of. The Golden Girls Christmas Extravaganza, is a night of singing, dancing and the kinds of moments that made us love the Girls in the first place.
The GGCE is filled with more holiday entertainment than toys on Santa's sleigh, including Boise Weekly's own Minerva Jayne starring in the role of Southern belle Blanche Devereaux.
Minerva and her trio of drag sisters will fill the shoulder pads of Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia in two reenactments of classic Christmas episodes punctuated by period sketches, holiday tunes and frequent trips to Visual Arts Collective’s full-service bar.
Shows run Thursdays: Nov. 19 and Dec. 10.; Fridays and Saturdays: Nov. 19-21, Nov. 27-28, Dec. 11-12. 8 p.m., $15-$20. Pay-what-you-want preview on Thursday, Nov. 19; brunch performance and meet-and-greet Sunday, Dec. 13, 12:30 p.m., $25.
