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.

Overall, acting was well done. We enjoyed the wife the most. Kept my attention almost the entire time. The theater company is wonderful. Go support them. They were also kind enough to provide snacks and wine. That always makes the experience even better too.

The play was excellent. The actors really got into their roles and when the glass
dropped for real it was a shock. The only negative was the stairs up to the theater.
The theater is not really accessible for someone who is handicapped.
