The Goodman Theatre's Venus in Fur is a brainy, salacious thrill.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
When Vanda arrives several hours late to her audition for a play based on a nineteenth-century erotic novel, the director, Thomas, is less than impressed. But Vanda's masterful performance flips the script on Thomas' expectations and turns the session into a tango for dominance between actress and director, woman and man. Hailed as "seriously smart and very funny" by The New York Times, Venus in Fur is a laugh-out-loud study of the politics of sex and power that's guaranteed to charm and mesmerize.
