WEST HARTFORD - 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! Shows are August 18 & 19 at 8pm, August 24 at 7:30pm, and August 25 & 26 at 8pm.
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. The performance will be steamy with just enough costumes to make it legal. This event is for grown-ups only, ages 18 and up! Feel free to pack some pina coladas to cool down, as MAMA D’s Hot Summer Nights is BYOB!
