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.

Quotes & Highlights
- "Exciting...charming...as [Rees] serves each little morsel, your wish is akin to Oliver Twist's: Please, sir, some more." <em>--Washington Post</em>
- "The comic highlight of the year...not since Monty Python's <em>Spamalot</em> opened on Broadway have I laughed as heartily and often as I did at Roger Rees' one-man show." --<em>North Adams Transcript</em>
- "At once merrily irreverent and respectful, audaciously dismissive and deserving, puckishly playful and protective, sublimely whimsical and wise...a delicious evening of theater in the fullest sense of the word." <em>--Berkshire Eagle </em>
What You Will is a celebration of theatre's most impactful playwright, by history's most influential players. There's Romeo, Juliet's foolish Nurse, gory Macbeth, Hamlet and the oh-so-tragic Richard II, joined by the likes of Charles Dickens, James Thurber, Noël Coward and Stevie Wonder.
Roger Rees, a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for 22 years, won both Olivier and Tony awards for his acclaimed performance in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. American television audiences know him as the dashing English tycoon Robin Colcord on "Cheers," British Ambassador Lord John Marbury on "The West Wing" and Dr. Colin Marlow on "Grey's Anatomy." His films include "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "Frida," "The Pink Panther" and "The Prestige," among many others.
