What begins as a normal audition for a role in a play turns into an increasingly seductive battle for power in Venus in Fur. Inspired by the notorious 1870 erotic novel of the same name, David Ives' saucy and sensational play pits actress against playwright in a virtuosic display of seduction, cruelty and gamesmanship. As the action shifts between the audition and the play within the play, the two engage in a kinky game of cat and mouse. Among the most acclaimed -- and most provocative -- new plays in recent Broadway history, Venus in Fur brilliantly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.

An excellent production! The story line was intriguing and kept one's interest. Although the subject of the play was serious, it was full of humorous moments. James T. Alfred and Erika LaVonn gave incredible performances. The creative team was very diligent in creating a 1960's atmosphere and the thunderstorm was really amazing.
There was not an intermission or the flow would have been disrupted.
