The Golden Girls live performance with roles played by drag queens is to premier tonight and fellow drag queen cast member, Pollo Del Mar, announce on Facebook that the show will go on with or without Cookie Dough, the drag queen playing Sophia in the stage show.
Cookie Dough is currently hospitalized in Puerto Vallarta in a coma due to a brain edema, or swelling of the brain.
It was announced on Wednesday evening that Cookie Dough wasn’t feeling well, but her condition worsened late Wednesday night when she slipped into a coma.
The Golden Girls is schedule to show at Puerto Vallarta’s Act II Entertainment starting January 22 through the 31.
The Golden Girls started performances in San Francisco in 2006 in the front parlor of a Victorian Mansion in the Western Addition of the City by the Bay. The shows quickly became more and more popular with the shows being performed twice annually – for a month every June and for a month each December. As The Golden Girls became more popular, they moved to sold out-runs at ever larger venues. In 2011 the show moved to the 500 seat Victoria Theatre where it now plays every December, for smash runs of its Christmas Episodes. In 2013 all 12 shows sold out! They’ve toured with the shows from New Orleans to the Russian River, and now look forward to their Puerto Vallarta debut.
Sad—hope for a full recovery
This really is sad news that someone would come to Puerto Vallarta to entertain and end in the hospital. I hope this has a happy ending.
