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.

Cal Shakes does not disappoint with their last production of this season. Much Ado has always been one of my favorite Shakespeare comedies, especially with the sharp tongues of Benedick and Beatrice. And here, the actors who play those two roles certainly did not disappoint. Their chemistry was fantastic, though I have to admit that Benedick won the audience over with his deliveries and expressions. The rest of the cast was just as good. Don John was way over the top, but it worked for me, in a cartoonish villain kind of way. It's light and good fun, so enjoy what is presented!
The men return from war only to find new battles on the field of love in Italy’s countryside. Artistic Director Jonathan Moscone helms Shakespeare’s comedy of love delayed, filled with villainy, betrayal, and a glorious ending celebrating the joy of love and the power of redemption.
