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.

Very creative (and macabre) musical and well done. Unfortunately, I was sitting in the second balcony which made for a less-than-stellar listening and viewing experience. The theater apparently does make listening devices available, but I would recommend against sitting so high up.

- "In this dark and dazzling reinvention, <em>Sweeney Todd</em> stakes its claim as the gold standard for the next hundred years." —<em>Rolling Stone</em>
The hit Broadway revival of Sondheim's musical thriller arrives at A.C.T.. In this visionary and reimagined production of Sweeney Todd, the legendary demon barber of Fleet Street still serves up his justice vigilante-style, but director John Doyle has created an edgier, stripped-down staging of Sondheim's masterpiece complete with a multitalented cast of actors playing all the instruments onstage. The intimate result delivers wicked pleasure in a chilling evening of theater that "burrows into your thoughts with a poisoned seductiveness" (New York Times). With its naughty humor and infectious melodies, Sweeney Todd knows how to show you a bloody good time!
