Heklina and Drag ’Golden Girls’ Close Out 2012
Well, the world didn't come to an end as predicted, and for good reason. San Francisco's beloved theater drag production of "The Golden Girls" television series hasn't finished its very popular Christmas run. "The Golden Girls: The Christmas Episodes," now in its seventh season, has become a must see for everyone, gay or straight, during the holiday season in the Bay city.
Originated by San Francisco drag legends Heklina (Dorothy) and Cookie Dough (Sophia), with the addition of Matthew Martin (Blanche) and Pollo Del Mar (Rose), the drag stage production captures all the heartfelt comedy of the original series, including the ever-so-cheesy 1970s commercial breaks. Selling out show after show at the historical Victoria Theater, "The Golden Girls: The Christmas Episodes" is an excellent way to end the year and to bring the seasonal spirit into 2013.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
