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.

The pluses: The Geary Theater is gorgeous.
The minuses: Long, drawn-out, tedious, and predictable with annoying actors/characters you just wanted to slap due to their overacting. And what's up with a chandelier in the outdoor scenes?
Quotes & Highlights
- "Deliciously and dexterously plotted." --<em>New York Times</em>
<p>Written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan</p> <p>The romantic and rich Lydia Languish loves her Captain Jack, but will she find out he's a wolf in cheap clothing? Will the stern Sir Anthony Absolute turn out to be a big softie after all? And who could refuse to love a character named Fag? Please remain calm, dear audience—this is not a pigment of your imagination. The Rivals is the one, the only, the original comedy of errands, and this fanciful classic simply cannot be topped. It is, as Mrs. M. says, the very pineapple of perfection!</p>
