Overview
By David Ives | Directed by Walter Bobbie

VENUS IN FUR is the sexiest, funniest, most acclaimed new Broadway play of the season! Written by theatrical mastermind DAVID IVES and directed by Tony Award® winner WALTER BOBBIE, VENUS IN FUR introduces us to Vanda (Tony nominee NINA ARIANDA), a preternaturally talented young actress determined to land the lead in Thomas’ (Emmy nominee HUGH DANCY) new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Fur. Vanda’s emotionally charged audition for the gifted but demanding playwright/director becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.
