Naked Girls Reading to Present Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Naked Girls Reading NYC - New York's "Best Story Hour" (The Village Voice Best of NY 2010) - stuffs your stocking with an extra-hot winter treat: their seventh annual reading of Charles Dickens' holiday classic A Christmas Carol. On Wednesday, December 16th host Nasty Canasta (declared by the New York Times to be "perhaps the loveliest and certainly the nudest Scrooge in history") leads an all-star cast of exhibitionists in an in-the-buff reading of this special version of A Christmas Carol, just as Dickens himself originally performed it - although perhaps a bit more naked.

"Dickens himself invented so many of our most cherished Christmas traditions," says Canasta, "and I'm sure he'd want to be part of this one. I'm certain he'll be standing in spirit right at our ... elbows." Join Nasty Canasta, Aria Vines, Cecilia Roux and Evelyn Vinyl in a celebration of the true meaning of the holidays: give the gift of full-frontal literature to a loved one - or yourself! - and don't miss out on any of the joys of the season.

Naked Girls Reading NYC is the perfect intimate live event: a monthly nude literary salon featuring in-the-buff readings by local burlesque luminaries, professional librarians, authors and other Naked Girls. Past themes have included Banned Books, Science Fiction and Tween Lit, as well as their annual holiday presentation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Guests to the salon are invited to sip a drink and listen with their eyes wide open as full-frontal literature meets fine art in this intimate theatrical setting.

Naked Girls Reading NYC is on the third Wednesday of every month at UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place between 1st Ave and Ave A) at 9pm. Tickets ($25 each) may be purchased online at www.NakedGirlsReadingNYC.com. Seating is limited to 45; advance tickets are strongly recommended.
