When the mysterious and sultry Vanda walks into playwright Thomas Novachek's office, he thinks the search for the perfect lead in his latest production might finally be over. But her audition quickly turns into a seductive and erotic power play that'll make you wonder who's really running the show. Among the most acclaimed -- and most provocative -- new plays in recent Broadway history, David Ives' Venus in Fur blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, and love and sex.

We were seated in the last row near a fan, so it became necessary for us to use hearing devices during the 2nd half of the play. We missed some of the dialogue during the first half. If you're seated way in the back, we suggest the hearing devices.info • Jun 14 2013 star this tip starred

The first act flies by and it's difficult to believe that it's just two actors trading dialogue that comes straight from their correspondence. It's a tribute to the script and the actors. The second act isn't quite as engaging. There are too many unknowns and it's just not as fun to watch talented people in decline. There was a lot of conversation during intermission about the "water" effect. I think it was a distraction and others thought it was a perfect accent to the themes.
