If you thought August in West Hartford couldn’t get any hotter, you haven’t been to Playhouse on Park for MAMA D’s Hot Summer Nights! MAMA D and her sultry entertainers are back by popular demand and are ready to turn up the heat with a night of dance, comedy and live music. MAMA D’s crew of sexy performers promise a steamy performance with just enough costumes to make it legal. For grown-ups only! Feel free to pack some pina coladas to cool down, as MAMA D’s Hot Summer Nights is BYOB!

MAMA D WARNS- This show is not for everyone. We're rude, we're crude and we're partially nude!
