At the inception of SinZation in 2004, Honey West was commissioned to help write and develop a show that would meet the needs of women seeking a venue for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and girl’s nights out, and she didn’t disappoint! Honey’s style and flare hit the mark with audiences of all backgrounds and made the show an instant success!
As a transgender woman, Honey’s sharp wit breaks the ice for guests who have never been to a male revue and might not understand how “things work”. Her presence makes every guest feel comfortable and welcome at the show, and her demeanor gives them permission to have the time of their lives!
Honey graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Musical Theater and has starred in productions such as “Dirty Dreams of a Clean Cut Kid,” “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom.” “Diva Diaries,” “Jerry’s Girls,” and “Tony and Tony’s Wedding.” She also had her own cabaret act lasted 13 years here in Chicago and in touring productions. Most recently she appeared in a Hell in A Handbag production of “Pussy on the House” written by Ryan Landry where she played the part of Big Mama, for which she received a Best Actress Award from Broadway World.com, and Trudy Eastman in the Jeff Nominated show, “Sexy Baby.”
To acknowledge all of her work, in 2012 Honey was induced into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame.
