Venus in Fur

By David Ives

Marx Theatre | April 19 - May 17, 2014

Broadway's hottest date night comes to the Playhouse. At the end of a long day of auditions, a playwright is convinced he’ll never find the right actress to play the heroine in his adaptation of a scandalous 19th century erotic novel. Enter Vanda, determined to prove she possesses the perfect blend of beauty, intelligence and sex appeal for the role. As the two act out the play, reality and fiction begin to blur in an electrifying cat-and-mouse game of love, seduction and power.

"Seriously smart and very funny." – The New York Times

Advisory: Venus in Fur is appropriate for adult and older teenage audiences. It is a sexual cat-and-mouse game. As such, it contains strong adult language, sexual themes and a scantily clad woman. Please contact the Box Office if you have questions or require additional information.

Running Time: The show runs approximately 95 minutes with no intermission.
