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.

In The Circle, what goes around comes around . . . just in time for cocktail hour. A forerunner to The Constant Wife—which was a hit with critics and audiences in 2002—The Circle set the standard for W. Somerset Maugham's winning brand of social satire. The Circle begins thirty years after the fresh-faced and vivacious Lady Kitty left her politician husband for a scandalous life with his best friend. Still vivacious (but not quite as fresh-faced), the exiled lovers flounce back into town just as history is preparing to repeat itself by wreaking havoc on the marriage of Kitty's grown son, Arnold. Will practicality beat out passion this time around? Will Arnold's straying spouse be influenced by her elders' impetuous example? And will anyone be able to tolerate another game of bridge with the insufferable Lord Porteous?
