About the Show
Get ready for a wild night of theatre.
This Broadway smash and Tony Award® Best Play nominee begins innocently enough: a young actress is auditioning before a demanding playwright/director for the role of a lifetime. But soon the tale takes a darker, edgy turn as we learn the play is based on the 1870 erotic novella Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (Mr. Masochism himself). When these two emotionally-charged artists get wrapped up in an ultimate test of wills, it’s man versus woman, director versus actress, and writer versus muse...all with a little leather and lace mixed in.
Is dominance the same as control? Can sexuality overpower gender roles? This electrifying game of cat and mouse will keep you guessing who has the upper-hand. Master playwright David Ives has written a smart and sizzling exploration of power, sexuality, and love that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Venus in Fur will be staged in the round with no seat more than five rows from the stage.
