Ready to (literally) strip away the innocence of classic Disney movies and forever ruin your childhood memories? It was bound to happen sooner or later, and how innocent were they, really?

It’s a ripe, all-too-tempting apple for Hotsy Totsy Burlesque as the “home for wayward girls” presents its Tribute to the Ladies of Disney. Cherry Pitz hosts as the fairy godmother who helps all the princesses lose their inhibitions in this “high camp soap opera” that promises to answer pressing questions like “Will true love save all?,” “Will the prince find his princess?,” and “Will everyone get naked?”
