The Golden Gays NYC™ Present: “Hot Flashbacks” 
A Golden Girls Musical Adventure 

Sophia Petrillo has gone missing!  Your favorite pals and confidants Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose must travel down the road and back again across America to find her.  Could she be at the Rusty Anchor?  Or right in their kitchen on Richmond Street?  Through a series of hilarious “hot flashbacks”, these hip old grannies take you on a musical journey through The Golden Girls’ most memorable moments to find their Ma!  One lucky audience member will be crowned the next #TokenSophia.  Live singing!  Dancing!  Bears!  Oh My!  

Toto, we’re not in Miami anymore, sugar.

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 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, 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 ambassadors for the Golden Fans at Sea cruises in 2020/2022.

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.
