‘Brown Girls Burlesque shakes & shimmies for diversity’- BUST magazine
‘’This bevvy of fierce women of color don’t skimp on the pasties, but they don’t skimp on the wink-wink factor that’s all important to burlesque either. A retro go-go girl in a bar get watched; a real burlesque dancer watches back , winking and knowing. Now that’s one thing for white woman to do with their bodies and their audiences, but quite another for women of color to negotiate. And Brown Girls Burlesque negotiates it with stunning, smart, sexy sexy success’ -TRACE
‘Not your mama’s burlesque’ -The Advocate
With long held taboos shattered with a toss of a bra and "peek-a-boo" bright and sparkly pasties, this show took myths and stereotypes of brown love, and both embraced and dismantled them with erotica and clever parody. -iDanz News
