“This is not your Bubbe’s Purim,” warns Dr. Block

The Dr. Susan Block Institute is delighted to announce its 4th biannual Purim Bacchanal, featuring the internationally renowned Commedia Erotica Players in a “Porny Purimspiel” of the Biblical story of Esther, the ancient Persian Jewish sexpot heroine who saved her people from genocide with nothing but her own Weapons of Mass Seduction. In a time when power was almost always gained through brute force and merciless violence–a time much like our own–this was, and still is, a human miracle.

Porn stars, poets and character actors will improvise Biblical roles as Dr. Susan Block, a former Sunday school teacher turned sexologist, narrates her critically acclaimed version of the Megillat Esther in the Womb Room, to be transformed into the king’s court and harem, as well as a “gallows” (a St. Andrew’s bondage cross), before a live studio audience, this Saturday night, March 19th, 2011, at Dr. Suzy’s Speakeasy in the Soul of Downtown LA.

Doors open for guests and audience at 9:30pm, and the show starts at 10:30pm PST, broadcasting live on DrSusanBlock.tv. An erotic after-party with Middle Eastern dance music starts at midnight.

Tehran-born Jewish porn star Persia Pele will play the title role of Queen Esther who grows from innocent virgin to powerful political seductress and sexy savior of her people. Martial artist/porn star Bon Jon Syn will be King Ahaseurus (the historic Xerxes). Rounding out the Commedia Erotica cast will be porn star Sinn Sage as Queen Vashti, award-winning playwright Michael Phillips as Mordecai, Chad Diamond as Mordecai’s son, comedian Chris Floyd as Haman, BDSM performer Dark Phoenix as Haman’s son, Lily Cade as Lilith, and Morgan Bailey as the Lead Eunuch. Misti Dawn, Michael Vegas (Venus and Eros on Eros Day XI), Jen Friel, Ms. Kartier, Shay Morgan, Rob Loads, Lya Pink, Lucy Blaze, Katie Kinns, Mona Sunoy and Xtina Quinn will round out the King’s court and harem. Pony girls Tindala and FeralKytn will play the King’s Horses, plus bellydancers and more exciting players confirming as Purim approaches. The drumming group Cachaca will provide live percussive accompaniment, and a Deus Ex Machina appearance by living porn legend Ron Jeremy, playing himself, is also expected.

Since Purim is the Judaic adaptation of the even more ancient spring holiday of Persian New Year or Nowruz, this special edition of The Dr. Susan Block Show will include erotic versions of such Nowruz customs as fire-jumping and spoon-beating, in addition to the Purim traditions of cranking groggers, eating hamentaschen and drinking until, according to the Babylonian Talmud, Megillah 7b, “one cannot tell the difference between the good guys and the bad” (and they say Charlie Sheen is decadent).

Only 100 guests and audience members will be admitted to the Speakeasy on March 19, and tickets are going fast. To make reservations, call 213.670.0066 or go to http://drsuzyb.com/jw
