The Golden Girls: The Lost Episodes, Vol. 2

Mary's Attic
5400 N. Clark Street Chicago

When THE GOLDEN GIRLS - THE LOST EPISODES debuted in June 2017, it was supposed to be a short summer treat for Handbag audiences, but quickly turned into one of the biggest hits in the company's history. Now, these lovely women from the classic TV sitcom return with new stories of friendship, love and cheesecake - all with the Handbag twist audiences have come to love! The all new episodes include Machiavellian mayhem when Dorothy, Rose and Blanche are all nominated for Women of the Year by the Miami Women's Auxiliary League; Sophia's mysterious part-time job; and a deep dark secret from Rose's past that shocks the girls to their core!

Presented by Hell in a Handbag Productions

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...The whole show is a vehicle for the cast's antics, pure and simple, and there's a ton of them, all more or less outrageously satisfying. There are also no fewer than four breaks in the action for audience trivia, with questions like, "What show did Rue McClanahan star in before Golden Girls?" Be forewarned: the crowd on my night could be ruthless about wrong answers. ("Oh, boo!" "It's Maude!" "What kind of gay doesn't know that?")"

Windy City Times - Recommended

"...Drag humor dates from antiquity and can be found in every culture practicing gender-role differentiation. While some theatergoers in 2018 might advocate its mockery going the way of Panto and Minstrel shows, there is no denying its enduring popularity or the artistry ( affirmed by a Special Award Jeff in 2017 ) bestowed upon the venerable genre by director Becca Holloway and the Hell In A Handbag ensemble. The text may indulge in gratuitously juvenile potty-mouth at times, but when the biggest laugh of the evening goes to a magistrate in a Minnesota courtroom declaring "We respect gender identity!" who can say that's not progress?"

"...We recommend for those die-hard Golden Girl fans that you catch the same insane fun seen on classic TV and watch as these four notorious women work out their problems together on stage in the kitchen eating guessed it...CHEESECAKE!"

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...This summer, for another rollicking trip down memory lane with Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia, Hell in a Handbag is serving up a generous helping of offbeat, side-splitting adult humor that won’t be found anywhere else in Chicago. Beneath the period costumes, the pouffy wigs and the preposterous plots there beats a gentle heart. It’s the same message that made the original TV series, seen from the mid-80’s to the early-90’s, and currently enjoyed in syndication, such a memorable, much-loved experience. Because, in the end, amid all the humor, “The Golden Girls” is a welcomed tribute to being a friend."
