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.

This play was fantastic start to finish. These two amazingly talented actors made this one of the best plays I have seen. The show is hilarious and touching.
Donald Corren and Judy Kaye play off each other beautifully. The story is told through the eyes of Ms. Jenkins' longtime accompanist, Cosme McMoon (Corren) and he keeps the show moving along at a brisk clip due to his spot-on comic timing and hilarious reactions. Judy Kaye is, of course, the consummate pro, delivering a master class in comic acting. Both of these actors deliver moments that are both "catch your breath" funny and "tear inducing" touching.
Go and see this show! I guarantee you will not be disappointed. The seats I received through Goldstar were fantastic! I plan on trying to see it again before it closes!
The remarkable Judy Kaye (Sweeney Todd) returns to A.C.T. in the outrageous Broadway role that earned her a Tony Award nomination. A fresh, original adventure, Souvenir imagines the story of real-life Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York socialite and tone-deaf diva who thought she was a great soprano. Broadway's brilliant Donald Corren plays her wry accompanist, who chronicles Florence's unlikely rise to cult status, culminating in an infamous sold-out Carnegie Hall performance. A heartfelt, wickedly funny look at the limits of self-perception and the unpredictable nature of friendship.
