This is a terrific play. Don't miss out on your chance to see it. It's intense, hilarious, dark, sexy, confrontational, and is simply staged and brilliantly acted.

However one might feel about the sexual politics this play addresses, one thing is certain: the performances by Christian Conn & Erica Sullivan should be experienced by anyone who professes a love of theater. It's a damn fine show.

Prepare to enjoy a roller coaster of tension and humor. The actors are wonderful. They savor each discovery and shift in power. Plus they both have great timing. My spouse and I (and the rest of the audience judging by their laughter and...

This was the most fun I've had at the theater in a long time. While both performers were great the performance by Erica Sullivan was brilliant. Her instantaneous shifts from one character to another were simply brilliant and kept the audience...continued

This is a must see just for the performance of female lead, Erica Sullivan. Christian Conn was very good but her performance was remarkable, If she doesn't get the Helen Hayes award it will be a travesty.

Raw. Sensual. Erotic. Thought provoking. This may be the best play you will see this year. Exceptional writing, stellar performing. You might be shocked but all the better for it.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The actors are working so hard but you don't notice their effort until you review the work as you are leaving Studio. The end of the play leaves you wondering about the true motivation of the character Vanda. So if you like...

Great Success!!! Pleasantly shoked by the masterly interpretation of the novel. We've been pushed to explore again once known Leopold fon Masoch.Both Actors were on the edge of perfection.

I agree with everything I've read about Erica Sullivan. She kept me at the edge of my seat with tension and laughter; she was fantastic. We had great seats and the actors/director did a fine job of ensuring everyone had a good view. This play...continued

Simply amazing performance. The theater is beautiful, with not a bad seat in the house for this particular production. My two highly discerning friends and I were awestruck.

Absolutely outstanding! The female lead, Erica Sullivan was amazing. Her wonderful ability to switch back and forth between the 2 characters was a joy to watch. The play kept me riveted throughout the entire 90 minutes. There was also a lot of...continued

"Venus in Furs" is a well-written play-within-a-play about a sexy cat-and-mouse game involving emotional domination and control between a man and a woman. It is a tour-de-force for the two characters, who are an actress and a director. Studio...continued

An excellent theater experience, though not one I would call "90 Minutes of Fun" as some of its posters allege. David Ives may be one of the best wordsmiths in playwriting dealing with important themes; I place him in the Tom Stoppard category....continued
