New 'Judy Garland & Bea Arthur' Show From The Producers of The Golden Girls: LIVE

“Judy and Bea: Two Dorothys reunited - for the 1st time! Starring the Gender Illusionist team of Peter Mac and John Schaefer (a couple in real life) take to the stage as the legendary rainbow diva and as the loveable golden girl. In this new musical cabaret show Garland and Arthur regale audiences with songs and stories of their days on stage and screen - or in Ms. Arthur’s case - TV Land. You’ll hear them sing live (not lip synch) such signature songs such as “Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart” and “The Man In The Moon”. As well as a bevy of musical surprises.

Mr. Mac first took to the stage as Garland in his autobiographical play Judy and Me. Schaefer filled Arthur’s sizeable shoes in the smash hit, The Golden Girls: LIVE!. Though never having once worked, met, or spent any time together…Garland and Arthur prove to be true Bosom Buddies! This show is a “must see” for any true “friend of Dorothy’s”.

Judy and Bea opens at Helens Hideaway Room located at 169 8th Avenue in New York City) on February 25th at 11:30pm. It will then play every subsequent Friday at the same time. Reservations for The Helen’s are taken from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., daily at (212) 206-0609.
