On October 12, 2007 over 250 packed into the Pussy Cat Lounge to witness the birth of the BGB experience to the sounds of Jimi Hendrix. With allurement, humor, and artistry this troupe of women representing Africa, Asia and the Americas is bringing to the stage theerotic and playful voice of Women of Color.

When something is this hot, fresh and authentic, people take notice. The BGB Lovelies have graced the pages of Bust Magazine, The Advocate, The Village Voice, and $pread Magazine. Features include a six-page editorial in TRACE’s Black Girls Rule issue and a video feature on NYPost.com entitled Burlesque in Color. With New York City in a glittered swoon Brown Girls Burlesque is poised to take it around the world.


Chicava HoneyChild, offers a sublime seduction through her tales. In Evil Beautiful Sunshine she lures you from the innocent into the dark side of hot then brings you back into the sun. Whatever Lola Wants merges the eloquence of Sara Vaughn with slick sexy Ibiza sounds and hot pink feathered fans. As
Black Betty you’ll wish she was your girlfriend, a naughty little black riding hood who rocks your asphalt.

ExHOTic Other Her work will have you laughing, crying and in awe. Puff the Magic Dragon is a sensual protest of stereotyped Asian femininity. Somewhere at the intersection of horror films and the NYC Halloween parade, Hipsters (are) Zombies examines the gentrification of NYC and its effects on the people and communities. Maneater, with Miss SOuthern COmfort, weaves a tale of an imperial hunter’s search for a wild thing, and in a hot battle it’s the wild thing that emerges victorious.

Honey Suckle Duvet Burlesque performer extraordinaire, is one of Boston’s rising Burlesque stars. With her successful “Burlesque for Better Body Image” workshops and numerous stage appearances, this award-winning Burlesque dynamo is not just a pretty face but an inspiration.  Ms. Duvet holds a B.S. in Theatre, Dance, and Human Services. Her heart lies in using Burlesque to inspire and lead groups of women to gain confidence and release their inner siren. Honey won the 2009 Most Beautiful award at The Great Boston Burlesque exposition with a moving piece about accepting one’s body and loving yourself. This brought the audience to their feet and some to tears.  She was a featured dancer in the runaway hit The Slutcracker a parody of the Nutcracker in 2008 and 2009. Always up for a challenge Honey started doing stand up comedy on the Naked Comedy Showcase.
