Hot Brown Honey

No longer available

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre


Hot Brown Honey turns up the heat, delivering lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment in the smash-hit cabaret show that’s about to take Auckland by storm!  

Packing a potent punch with hip hop politics, the Honeys will make you laugh until you cry, clap until your hands bleed, and shake every part of what your mama gave you. This posse of phenomenal women defiantly smashes stereotypes, remixes the system and dares to celebrate our similarities and differences in an explosion of colour, culture and controversy.

"It’s phenomenal – sexy, foot-stomping fun and radical consciousness-raising all at the same time. ★★★★★"
– The Scotsman

Hot Brown Honey is unapologetically fierce, serving up an audacious platter of dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease and song. With set, lighting, music and costumes to rival Beyoncé at Madison Square Garden, it’s political theatre like you’ve never seen before.

Get a taste of honey

Every night there will be a queen on the decks who will be stirring up the hive before and after the show.  

Become one with the hive – fighting the power never tasted so sweet!
