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.

Great fun. The principals especially were wonderful. Juliet radiated beauty, and happiness until the tragic part starts- then she went through the gamut of emotions flawlessly and convincingly. Romeo was convincingly in love, energetic, impulsive, totally romantic. All the supporting cast was good, especially the nurse/prince and Benvolio/mother- the supporting actors doubled. The young people conveyed early adolescence very well- active, funloving, bawdy, quarrelsome. The action was a bit too manic for my taste, and there were mild sadistic and homosexual overtones that seemed out of place for the play, though fine for the Bay Area. CalShakes, as always, is a friendly, beautiful place to spend an evening. We were glad we brought cushions for the hard seats and a blanket for the cold,- we didn't need the binoculars. Great fun.

Not a lover of Shakespeare, but found this performance to be simply wonderful! Beautiful setting and simply staged, the actors are so vibrant and engaging, that you're immediately drawn to this timeless story. Great theater in our own back yard.
Terrace seating does not have pre-placed chairs; you may bring your own low-backed beach chair or rent one on site for $3.00.
This venue is outdoors. The theatre provides complimentary blankets on chilly evenings, but remember to dress warmly for cool nights.
