Urban Samurai Productions wraps up its 7th season with a classic tale of intrigue, deceit and seduction, made famous by the Hollywood movie Dangerous Liaisons
starring Glen Close and John Malkovich. Christopher Hampton's script is staged here with a more-modern 60s twist a la Mad Men
. A conniving and treacherous tale, Les Liaisons Dangereuses
provides a voyeuristic peek into the elite world of Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont -- rivals who use sex as weapons in a game of humiliation and degradation. Merteuil discovers her former lover plans to marry a well-heeled virgin, Cecile, and enlists Valmont to seduce Cecile, which will humiliate her former lover. However, Valmont has already set a challenge for himself: to ravage the virtuous beauty Madame de Tourvel. Merteuil and Valmont make a bet: If he can succeed with Tourvel, the Marquise will reward him with sexual favors, all the while expecting his assistance in ruining Cecile's reputation. Jimmy LeDuc directs this production, which brims with impulse, pleasure and deception.
