Fellow Bostonians (and Somervillians, and Cantabrigiae Novae), have you found yourself sitting and musing, on this fine wintry afternoon, “Self, I’d love to go see the classic story of The Nutcracker this holiday season, but I can’t help thinking that there just aren’t enough tits in ballet.”?
Wonderful news! Someone has come up with a solution to this problem. The inimitable Sugar Dish, classically-trained ballerina and burlesque dancer extraordinaire, is once again producing The Slutcracker, the heartwarming tale of sweet Clara, the daring Drosselmeyer, and a magic dildo. The whip-cracking, pole-dancing, festive holiday Bacchanale runs at the Somerville Theater, including performances on XXX-Mas Eve and First Night.
We at Circlet Press sent out an envoy to deliver a large box of Christmas lesbians (in convenient paperback form) to the producer before the show opened. Get your tickets now to see what she’s done with them!
(I’ll be serving as an usher on December 20th and 24th. Come verify for yourself that we really do exist outside of the internet! — Arabella, the Porn Fairy)
Porn Fairy: Hey, do you want to go to the Lit Roast with me?
Porn Fairy’s Housemate: I don’t know. What is it?
PF: A bunch of burlesquers and circus people, plus my boss, are getting together to make fun of books.
PFH: …yes. Yes, I do.
Come see the third Literary Roast, at OBERON (2 Arrow Street, Cambridge, MA) on Thursday, 12/18! Join an all-star roster of naughty librarians and dirty grammarians for a knock-down, drag-out celebration of books and authors — including Grand High Poobah of Circlet Press (and loyal Harry Potter fan), Cecilia Tan, taking J K Rowling down a peg or five. We never turn up to these things without a hostess gift of the adult persuasion, either, which the hosts say will be going home with a few lucky someones in the audience.
Turn up, take your chances, and leave with a whole new definition of “bookworm”.
Hello again, Boston locals! Just in case you’re not already having an ass-tacular winter, I’d like to tell you a little bit about a show going on tomorrow. Wednesday, December 17th. Hosted by the legendary Johnny Blazes, this 5th anniversary show provides the perfect rear-end to your burlesque year!
From their Facebook event page:
“The BUTTCRACKER – 5th ANALVERSARY SHOW!
December 17 at OBERON
When Madge of Honor and Johnny Blazes conceived of The Buttcracker, they never imagined there would be enough butt puns + ass imagery to stuff five shows full, but here we are: the 5TH ANALVERSARY ASSTRAVAGANZA! The holiday hole in Boston is in fact gaping enough to fit another clASSIc show. The Buttcracker truly is the gift that keeps on giving!”
I attended their show last year, and let me tell you, you never forget the first time you hear someone utter the phrase, “And the Glory of the LORD twerked around them.” And don’t miss your chance to win an assload of prizes! Yours truly, the hard working Porn Fairy of Circlet Press, will be dropping off some fine adult literature for Johnny and Madge to give out during the show.
