Since 2007 The Boston Babydolls have been providing the highest caliber, classic burlesque in the northeast. The membership roster has changed over the years, but the quality of the leadership, the production values, and the commitment to customer satisfaction has never wavered. The current line-up includes:
OL' SCRATCH: A witty M.C. and wily magician, Ol' Scratch is the glue that holds the show together, providing colorful commentary between each number. He's even been known to sing or dance every once in a while.
MISS MINA MURRAY: "The Queen of the Fans", Miss Mina has been compared favorably to the legendary Sally Rand. An elegant and classic stripteaser, Miss Murray is the protege of burlesque headliner April March. Known best for her use of ostrich fans, she sometimes sheds her refined image to do comedic acts or even hula hoop.
BETTY BLAIZE: "The Towering Inferno" six feet of fun, Miss Blaize is the troupe's lead choreographer. A student of a wide variety of dance forms, this leggy glamazon combines East and West in her dance routines. She's as comfortable executing a perfect swing turn as she is doing traditional belly dance.
DEVORA DARLING: Delicate and delightful, this darling of the stage trained as a ballerina before turning to burlesque. Her winsome acts and winning smile have been stealing the hearts of audience members since she joined The Boston Babydolls in 2010.
BRIGITTE BISOUX: "The French Tart", Brigitte sashays onto any stage with sass and sex appeal. Brigitte started burlesque in college, and was ejected from her graduation ceremony when the dean found out where she had put her tassels. Brigitte's world-class shimmy goes all the way down to her toes; she's also a talented tap dancer!
STELLA DIAMOND: "The Sparkling Jewel of Burlesque" Stella has the voice of an angel and a body built for sin. Don't let her wholesome good looks fool you, she's as comfortable steaming up the stage with a sizzling torch song (or burlesque striptease) as she is crooning a catchy tune.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 15 - 120 minutes
The Boston Babydolls provide high-energy entertainment for sophisticated adult audiences. We provide a classic burlesque revue of comedy, magic, and variety acts accompanying old-fashioned bump 'n' grind striptease. THERE IS NO NUDITY IN OUR SHOWS. Our striptease artistes start in spectacular costumes of feathers, silk, and Swarovski crystals, and teasingly disrobe down to panties and pasties.
We're happy to work with you on themed shows for your special interest group or event. In the past we've done "Drinking" themed shows for major liquor labels, "Car" themed shows for classic car rallies, and even a "Toy" themed show for the birthday party of a toy manufacturer.
Shows can run anywhere from a 15-minute (roughly three act) performance, to a full-blown two hour long production, with lights, set pieces, and more. The only limits are your imagination.
