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 radically original fusion of movement and theater explores 100 years in the life of North Beach nightspot Tosca Café, conjuring a world in which love, betrayal, and hope emerge from the shadows and disappear with the clink of a glass. The Tosca Project brings world-renowned dancers from San Francisco Ballet, including prima ballerina Sabina Allemann, together with such acclaimed actors as The Overcoat's Peter Anderson and A.C.T.'s own Jack Willis (Rock 'n' Roll). Loosely structured around the themes of Puccini's Tosca, this imaginative new work is gorgeously choreographed, achingly moving, and scored with some of the best music ever made, from Hendrix to Stravinsky.
