And so begins the tale of Harlem’s Night: A Cabaret Story featuring The Brown Betties. These memorable characters and their friends take you on a journey of what happens when a woman lets a man in her life, and he just don’t treat her right. Between scenes of jaw-dropping dance numbers, sensual stripteases and passionate exchanges, the four Brown Betties eloquently reveal what it means to be a woman – and more specifically – a woman scorned. Expressions of infatuation, longing, bitterness, rage, desperation, pain and hurt surround the underlying theme of seduction, making this burlesque show more than a tale of lust. It’s a quintessentially human story that examines how the quest for love can bring out the best – and worst – in all of us.
I’ve seen Harlem’s Night twice now, and let me tell you, this is a show you do not want to miss. Yes, there’s enough serious eye-candy to last a lifetime (not just for the men either…Ladies, Joe, the main bad boy, is rather easy on the eyes, too), but also expect to be tickled to the bone, as the show adds a good dose of comedic, light-hearted scenes throughout the night. And don’t expect to be a passive audience member; these Brown Betties demand attention – both from Joe and the audience as well. That’s all I’ll say on that note.
The next show will take place Wednesday, August 3rd at 8pm at The Mint. Tickets are on sale now, so hurry and get them!

In her own words: “A night with the Brown Betties is perfect for girls night, alone or for a fellas night... you'll be enveloped into a sultry atmosphere that will have you thinking of us long after you've left the show!”
