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.

Beautiful staging, gorgeous costumes, fantastic acting, and undoubtedly a clever play, but at least where we were sitting, we could barely hear the dialogue so most of it was lost on us. We left at intermission. Zellerbach may just be too large a venue for this type of play, at least without amplification.
Shakespeare's boisterous send-up of all those who try to turn their back on life is a mighty display of every weapon in the youthful playwright's comic arsenal, from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations, to drunkenness, bust-ups, and pratfalls. Even more, it is a joyful banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages, and parodies.
This heady combination receives royal treatment from the famed Globe—the world's pre-eminent exponent of the Bard's immortal works—and was a hit during the company's 2007 season. Directed by the Globe's artistic director Dominic Dromgoole, with designs by Jonathan Fensom and music by Claire van Kampen, the Globe's production "mixes bare-faced cheek with bare-cheeked bottoms" (The Guardian, London), employing Renaissance staging, costumes, and music.
