"Funny, Satisfying...will have you in stitches" —Asbury Park Press "Electrifying Comedy"—njartsmaven.com "Don't Miss This"—The Alternative Press "Seriously Sexy"—The New York Times
VENUS IN FUR by David Ives directed by Kip Fagan with Mark Alhadeff and Jenni Putney
WHERE: George Street Playhouse, 9 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick
The sexy hit of the New York theatre season, this electrifying and seductive comedy will shock and surprise as it deftly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. With a crash of thunder and lightning, an arresting young actress, Vanda, arrives hours late at the end of a long and unfruitful audition day. An emotionally-charged game of cat and mouse unfolds as Vanda makes clear her determination to land the lead in Thomas’ new play, an adaptation of the classic erotic novel, Venus in Furs.
