Boston Babydolls present "Madame Burlesque"
August 27, 2011
The latest and greatest show from The Boston Babydolls; a tribute to those legendary ladies who made burlesque great. The two-hour show is an homage to Gypsy Rose Lee, Blaze Starr, Sally Rand, and many others. The show debuted in Cambridge at the beginning of July, and The Boston Babydolls have been touring with it since then, updating and improving it. If you’ve seen MADAME BURLESQUE before, we’ve got some new surprises for you – and if you haven’t seen it, don’t miss your last chance!
The show features a mix of favorite Babydoll numbers and brand-new acts. Some crowd favorites are a new version of Betty Blaize’s tribute to Zorita’s incredibly sexy spiderweb number and Miss Mina’s April March homage which debuted at The Great Burlesque Exposition in April 2011.
MADAME BURLESQUE features The Boston Babydolls Miss Mina Murray, Betty Blaize, and Devora Darling plus Brigette Bisoux, Corinne Southern, and special guest stars. The show is hosted by Scratch, who doesn’t take his clothes off, but is a pretty funny guy and does some impressive magic.
