We’re gonna be honest: Things around the Broadway.com offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Broadway.com Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in!
WHY WE LOVE IT
If there’s one thing we know, it’s Broadway. If there’s another thing we know, it’s The Golden Girls. It doesn't get much better than hanging out in Miami with our besties Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia...oh, except this delightfully tacky video of Bernadette Peters in purple silk genie pants, singing the show’s theme song, “Thank You For Being a Friend” at her 1979 concert. We know, we know, the hit series didn't premiere until 1985, so Peters is really covering Andrew Gold's version of the song, but still. She's a pal and a confidant.
LOOK OUT FOR...
2:07. “Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,” Bernadette!
