[Fark] Corporate Mofo does _The Courtesan Tales_

Nicole Blackman's Courtesan Tales is billed as a one-person show performed for an audience of one, but in reality, there are at least two people involved besides Ms. Blackman: The lovely and pleasant "assistant" who serves you mint tea, takes your fee ($20 per story), and presents the menu of tales; and you, the audience member yourself. Because the performance is so personal, your reactions, and what goes on inside of your mind, are as much a part of the experience as anything the "Courtesan" does. There's no voyeurism here.

We appear to be an extremely lonely AND wealthy society when people will pay $20 to be tied to a chair and have a story told to them...

Or maybe I'm just hopelessly vanilla. ;]
