Rarely does an event’s name so accurately capture its essence as Naked Girls Reading. Started in Chicago in 2009 by Michelle L’amour and Franky Vivid, the show features beautiful naked girls…. reading on stage. Of the event’s purpose, according to its founders:
“There’s something beautiful, something altogether more intimate, about a woman reading pretty much anything in her, well, altogether. It’s just that simple. So why are we still talking about it? Because people can’t seem to accept its simplicity.”
And Miss Rose of Bravissimo Burlesque, an ingenious performer and creator, brought the feature to Philadelphia. We talk about the growing popularity of Naked Girls Reading (it’s international!), what happens during a show and the appeal of burlesque to a nice, book-smart girl.
The show is Sunday September 23rd at PhilaMOCA at 9 pm.
