"I couldn't be more thrilled to be working once again with these brilliant talents," said Nasty Canasta. "And I have no doubt that their sensual portrayals of the ghosts of Burlesque past, present, and future, will warm the cockles of any Scrooge's heart-not to mention the regions a bit lower down."
FILTHY LUCRE runs the first two weeks of December, Thursday through Saturday at 8:00pm, Sunday at 7:00pm at Walkerspace, 46 Walker Street, TriBeCa. The run includes a sneak preview Wednesday December 2 at 8:00pm, NAKED GIRLS READING A CHRISTMAS CAROL: Dickens Original Performance Text on Wednesday December 9 @ 8:00pm, and a special Hanukkah Edition of FILTHY LUCRE on Thursday, December 10 at 10:00pm.
Pinchbottom is where burlesque meets theater, buys it a drink and takes it to bed. The brainchild of Nasty Canasta & Jonny Porkpie (who should probably not be described at the Lunt-Fontannes of the New York Burlesque scene, although they do perform together with alarming frequency), Pinchbottom recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, and in December will debut a brand-new holiday show "FILTHY LUCRE: A (burlesque) Christmas Carol" for a two-week run. Named the "Best Burlesque in NY" by New York Magazine and called "The Best Burlesque Show in Town" by The Village Voice, Pinchbottom is the winner of the first-ever "Most Innovative" award from The Burlesque Hall of Fame.
