Showtune Sunday: All about Bea Arthur!
You might be wondering why I’ve decided to do an entire Showtune Sunday posting about the late, great Bea Arthur.
Okay, I’ll tell you – but just because you dragged it out of me.
On Friday night, I went to opening night of the brilliant Golden Girlz Live, a drag version of The Golden Girls starring Drew Droege, Sam Pancake, Sherry Vine, and Jackie Beat in Miss Arthur’s role of Dorothy. The fabulous Alec Mapa guest starred.
So got home and went into a Golden Girls wormhole on YouTube and it led to all these great musical performances by Miss Arthur who won a Tony Award for her performance as Vera Charles in Mame.
She may be best known as Maude and Dorothy on TV but Bea Arthur could sing one helluva number.
