New York City
Nominated for 2 Tony Awards including Best Play!
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 (Hugh Dancy), 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. Venus in Fur had its world premiere at Classic Stage Company.
