"Very smart [and] sexy"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

March 8 - April 13, 2014 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 1 hour and 35 minutes with no intermission

Sexy. Provocative. Hilarious. The smash Broadway hit, dubbed “90 minutes of good, kinky fun” by The New York Times, makes its Chicago debut in a delicious new production.

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. 

Please note, Venus in Fur contains adult content.
