Venus in Fur

Closed December 18, 2011

Venus in Fur makes its Broadway premiere in October and promises to be 90 minutes of good, kinky fun! Starring Tony Nominee Nina Arianda, and Directed by Tony Award Winner Walter Bobbie, this comedy is not to be missed.

Why See Venus in Fur?

Critically acclaimed as "90 minutes of good, kinky, fun!" by The New York Times, VENUS IN FUR makes its Broadway premiere at MTC.

Tony Award nominee Nina Arianda in her phenomenal breakout performance as Vanda, is a preternaturally talented young actress determined to land the lead in a new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Fur.

Her emotionally charged audition for Thomas, the play's adapter/director, becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.

This dazzling new play is written by theatrical mastermind David Ives, and directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie.
