Before friends debated whether they were a Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte or Miranda of Sex and the City, they considered whether they were a Sophia, Rose, Blanche or Dorothy from The Golden Girls.

And while the show about a quartet of older ladies in Miami hasn't been on the air since 1992, through the power of re-runs, the internet and Hulu it has gained a new fan following. Now a new-ish satirical version of the comedy series is headed to Playhouse Square next March, and to make it even more ridiculous, the ladies are shown in puppet form.



That Golden Girls Show heads to Hanna Theatre March 13 and 14, with showings at 7:30 p.m. both days and a 1:30 showing on that Saturday as well. Tickets are $39 to $49.
