The Golden Gays NYC have quickly emerged as the premier Golden Girls show in the country.  The perfect drag show for the whole familyGGNYC for short, they burst onto the scene in 2017- first at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC, then at the famed Rue La Rue Café, where their trivia show video went viral.   What began as a flash mob has now skyrocketed to sold-out engagements all across America.  GGNYC has produced multiple successful tours, each one growing larger, with their hit musical shows “Hot Flashbacks”, “The Golden Games”, and “Thank Yule For Being A Friend” to enthusiastic audiences in New York City, Asbury Park, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Atlantic City, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, Provincetown, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis, Rochester, New Hope (PA), Cumberland (MD), and Hackensack (NJ).  “Hot Flashbacks' premiered Off-Broadway at NYC’s Theatre Row in the summer of 2018. Each Fall, they participate in RuPaul’s DragCon NYC with their own GGNYC booth, meeting hundreds of new Golden fans each year.  They have sailed the high seas, first with Vacaya Travel’s inaugural P-Town cruise in August 2019, and as the headlining entertainment for the annual Golden Fans at Sea cruises.  During the pandemic, GGNYC produced online digital entertainment nearly every week for their fans.

The Golden Gays NYC stars Jason B. Schmidt (as The Dorothy), Andy Crosten (as The Blanche), and Gerry Mastrolia (as The Rose) along with Musical Director Mason Griffin.  Featuring the creative team of Anthony Giorgio-Schmidt and Darlene Rae Heller.  A musical adventure, their shows consist of live singing and dancing, along with hilarious sketches from the television show's most memorable moments.
