  • Named Boston’s Best Burlesque in a Boston Phoenix Reader Poll, 2011
  • “The Boston burlesque scene is heating up, and The [Boston] Babydolls are at the helm of it all.”—


Madame Burlesque features The Boston Babydolls rotating cast: Miss Mina Murray, Betty Blaize, Brigitte Bisoux, Devora Darling, Evie Sphinx and Stella Diamond. The show is hosted by Scratch, who doesn’t take his clothes off, but is a pretty funny guy and does some impressive magic.
