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.

<p> </p> <p>This spring, the EXIT Theatre in San Francisco will host Terrence McNally’s raw, poignant comedy, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, starring Ben Ortega of Oakland, and Cheryl Smith of San Francisco. A smash 1987 Broadway hit, the play is directed by Bay Area actress/director, Michael Haven of Richmond.</p> <p>Written by one of America's pre-eminent dramatists (Master Class, Kiss of the Spider Woman, The Full Monty) Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune is the hard-hitting, but ultimately redeeming romance of a waitress and a short-order cook, both on the cusp of middle age, both facing a lifetime of solitude in an anonymous purgatory called New York City. Author McNally brings Frankie and Johnny together through a sort of kismet, a cosmic kinship forged through two lives of hardship that coincide at certain key points. The only thing holding them together is Johnny's unshakable belief that together they can build something greater. Sometimes touching, sometimes hilarious, they banter and spar their way through an evening of what may either turn out to be just another one-night stand…or the happily-ever-after ending both desperately long for, but are afraid to believe could really exist.</p>
