The return of last year’s sensation Hot Brown Honey!
Hot Brown Honey returns to Vancouver from Mar 15 – 30. The cabaret of politics, dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease, and song was a smash hit when it played the York Theatre last year, and it’s coming back to the Commercial Drive venue for another run.
Reviewing the show last year for the Vancouver Sun, Jerry Wasserman wrote: “It’s an immensely clever and entertaining show that blatantly sugar-coats, or rather honey-coats, its serious political message. Fighting the power, the Honeys promise, never tasted so sweet.” Find out more below.
The show features six women of Aboriginal Australian, Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Indonesian and South African descent. Equal parts theatrical spectacular and social activism, Hot Brown Honey received the 2016 UK’s Total Theatre Award for Innovation, and Australia’s Green Room Awards for Best Production and Best Design.
The show is a presentation of Australian company Briefs Factory. It stars Kim “Busty Beatz” Bowers, Lisa Fa’alafi, Ofa Fotu, Hope “Hope One” Haami, Elena Wangurra, and Crystal Stacey.
