"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."

Marley was nude, to begin with....
Charles Dickens immortal classic finally drops its knickers and gets down to business. "A Christmas Carol is perhaps my absolute favorite piece of literature," says Pinchbottom co-producer Nasty Canasta, who will play the Scrooge character in the show. "But there has always been one thing missing from the classic tale... and that is, of course, sexy Victorian-era vixens lasciviously removing their knickers." According to Jonny Porkpie, who plays Marley's Ghost and is adapting the story for the burlesque stage, the Pinchbottom version will not stray far from the original text. "Other than changing the Scrooge character to a woman, his counting house to a strip club, and adding boobs every few minutes"--he said--"the show will be completely faithful to Dickens." "I mean, in its own way," Porkpie clarified. "Perhaps it might be more accurate to say that the show and Dickens will have an open relationship." Paired with a special holiday edition of Naked Girls Reading.
