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.

Just back from the Verona Project and I liked it so much I wanted to write the review straight away. We love Cal Shakes but I was a bit dubious about this one, a modern re-imagining of Two Gentlemen of Verona by a band...what? Well, I've just seen it and I recommend it highly. Shakespeare in the same way that the movie "Shakespeare in Love" is Shakespeare, evocative of the bard without being strictly Shakespearean.
It's a musical story rather than a musical, more rock opera than a Broadway. Band, plus story, plus acting = something refreshing, accessible, entertaining and magical. I thought they could have shortened the second act but overall very well done.
