Unlucky in Love
Presented by Boston Babydolls Burlesque at Davis Square Theatre
January 27 - February 14, 2012
The Boston Babydolls are back!
Winners of "Best Burlesque" in 2011 from both The Boston Phoenix and The Weekly Dig, The Boston Babydolls always present an evening of smart, innovative burlesque with outstanding production values.
Unlucky in Love tells the story of a hapless writer examining episodes from his own life as he tries to pen a self-help guide to romance. Unfortunately for him (but fortunately for the audience), what he doesn't know could fill a book. Calamities of the heart have never been so funny or sexy as they are in this burlesque story of love and misfortune. It's two hours of teasing, pleasing, romance, and magic all accompanied by the excitement of live music, courtesy of The Unluckiest Band in The World.
This Valentines season give your special honey more than a box of chocolate. A performance by New England's leading burlesque troupe is a saucy gift of love. The line-up includes both veterans of the established troupe and some new members. Regular attendees of Boston Babydolls shows are familiar with Miss Mina, the 'classy lassie with the sassy chassis', and Betty Blaize, the six foot tall glamorous Amazon who combines burlesque traditions with showgirl aesthetics. Newer members include the classically-trained Devora Darling, the energetic Evie Sphinx, and the newest member of the troupe, the curvaceous Brigitte Bisoux. Each Boston Babydolls is her own special flavor of sassy sweetness on stage.
