Review: Hot Brown Honey

Hot Honey Brown

It’s a man’s world – we are reminded by the divine opening number for the suave burlesque cabaret show Hot Brown Honey, but as the highbrow blend of dance, poetry, circus and striptease really gets going under the political hip-hop guidance of queen-of-cool emcee Busty Beatz, we’re very quickly consumed…

The audience were clearly…

Placing SOAP into any genre (or section of The Fringe Guide) certainly won’t wash with me; it can fit into any of them, all of them! It’s a fantastic fusion of cabaret, circus, dance, music and theatre (with some comedy too). There is so much in it and it is…
