Venus in Fur
Date(s): 06/02/2016 - 06/26/2016
A stage director anxiously searches for the perfect leading lady. An aspiring actress careens into the audition room, causing havoc and confusion. But in the course of an evening, while a storm rages outside, the erotic seduction of power takes center stage and the rules of domination are forever reversed. The New York Times review of David Ives's award-winning new play says it all: "Seriously smart and very funny." (P.S. – Don't bring the children!)
