Additional Notes:
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 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, 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. www.NakedGirlsReadingNYC.com

"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

The Norwegians
Wednesday, October 02, 2013 through Sunday, April 27, 2014
A comedy about gangsters. Norwegian gangsters. The nice kind. There's somebody else for everyone.
Venue: ( The Drilling CompaNY Theatre)
The Drilling CompaNY Theatre
Producer: ( The Drilling Company)
The Drilling Company
City: New York

Additional Notes:
THE NORWEGIANS is a bitter comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters--Norwegian hit men--they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with there: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting kind. If you're a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out their ex (Oofda!). Olive has referred Betty to Gus and Tor, a partnership in the whacking business. What Tor doesn't know is that Gus has been sleeping with the clients. What Olive doesn't know is that Gus is Betty's own ex, and she has already put out a hit on him with a Swiss firm. Can Betty call off the job in time to let Gus do his? Should she?

The Two-Character Play
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 through Sunday, April 27, 2014
292 Theatre presents "The Two-Character Play" by Tennessee Williams as it's never been done before.
Venue: ( 292 Theatre)
292 Theatre
Producer: ( 292 Theatre)
292 Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
This rarely-produced play by Tennessee Williams features two characters: brother and sister Felice and Clare. They are actors on tour, apparently abandoned by their acting company in a decrepit "state theatre in a state unknown." Presumably awaited by an audience expecting a performance, they enact The Two-Character Play, an illusion within an illusion, created from isolation, panic, fear, and the specter of a terrible secret they've been guarding together for an unknown length of time.
