NAKED GIRLS READING NYC presents THE EMERALD ISLE
On Thursday, March 17th NAKED GIRLS READING NYC - New York's "Best Story Hour" (The Village Voice Best of NY 2010) - presents THE EMERALD ISLE, an all-new evening of in-the-buff readings of some of Ireland's greatest authors, in the decadent boudoir setting of Greenwich Village's Madame X lounge.
Nasty Canasta is joined by burlesque superstars Sapphire Jones, Stormy Leather, Honi Harlow and RunAround Sue, as the Naked Girls kick off St. Patrick's Day in the traditional way: with gorgeous naked women reading from some of the best stories of the Emerald Isle ever written. Featured pieces will include classics by Oscar Wilde and James Joyce; selections from contemporary authors Desmond Hogan and Roddy Doyle; comedian Tony Hawks' travelogue Round Ireland With A Fridge; traditional folk tales and stories; and musings on the demon Drink by authors from Ireland and beyond.
Guests to the salon are invited to relax in the plush velvet upstairs lounge at Madame X and sip a cocktail as Nasty, Sapphire, Stormy, Honi and Sue celebrate great Gaelic literature. $25 reserved seating is limited to 40 (and includes one drink from Madame X's 'Foreplay' menu), with a small number of standing room tickets available at $15 - or share the "Luck of the Irish" with our special package: reserved seating and cocktails for two, for only $40! Purchase tickets in advance at www.NakedGirlsReadingNYC.blogspot.com and start St. Patrick's Day off with some full-frontal literature as NAKED GIRLS READING NYC presents THE EMERALD ISLE, at Madame X on Thursday March 17th at 8:00pm.
Naked Girls Reading began in Chicago in March 2009 as the creation of international showgirl Michelle L'Amour and Franky Vivid. The idea had rolled around in their heads for a few years in different formats, but with the opening of Studio L'Amour in 2008 it materialized as the perfect intimate live event. Naked Girls Reading now has branches across the country and around the world; the New York chapter, produced by Nasty Canasta of Sweet & Nasty Burlesque, was opened in October 2009 to great acclaim ("Great literature stripped bare" -Entertainment Weekly; "It was a remarkable experience." -Tor.com) and was named "New York's Best Story Hour" by the Village Voice in 2010.
"Naked Girls Reading has clearly evolved into something more than just titillation. It is titillating, but after the first thrill of the initial disrobing, the pleasure of seeing beautiful women undressed fades besides the sense of intimacy achieved from someone bearing both their body and their soul at the same time." -Tor.com
