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.

What a wonderful surprise! Very impressed with the amazing voices of leads, Carmichael Blankenship and Mary Melnick. I must commend FMT for placing a person of color in the lead role! That is so important to me as a person of color and as an active theater subsciber (SJ Rep, SJ Stage and SF's Best of Broadway).
I wish all theaters would take FMT's lead and have casts which reflect our community!
Quotes & Highlights
- In 1999, <em>Time</em> magazine voted <em>Carousel</em> the “Best Musical of the Century.”
The multi-award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. Set in a small New England seaside town, the show follows the love story of Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carnival barker, and Julie Jordan, the spunky local factory worker he falls for. Forging new territory in musical theatre storytelling, this lush work from the Golden Era of Broadway features a superbly witty script from Hammerstein and boasts some of Rodgers’ most memorable tunes, including “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” the gorgeous “Carousel Waltz,” and the showstopping “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Award-winning director Jay Manley helms this emotionally riveting take on Nicholas Hytner’s 1994 Tony Award-winning revival of the show.
