{module ad_left_body}VENUS IN FUR is currently playing a sold out engagement at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The production will end at the Friedman on Sunday, December 18 and resume performances at the Lyceum Theatre on Tuesday, February 7.

When it opened last month, VENUS IN FUR received universal rave reviews from critics. Charles Isherwood of the New York Times said “Nina Arianda is giving the first must see performance of the Broadway season,” Adam Green of Vogue raved that “Hugh Dancy is smashing,” and Scott Brown of New York Magazine called the two young actors, “flawless” and David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter said they have a chemistry that “sizzles.”

Longtime collaborators David Ives and Walter Bobbie have been lauded for their work on the production with the Times saying, “David Ives’ Venus in Fur, stylishly directed by Walter Bobbie, is a suspense-packed study of power that is as funny as any play currently on Broadway,” Thom Geier of Entertainment Weekly called it “an electric new Broadway drama with a sexiness that is stunning to behold,” and Mark Kennedy of the Associated Press said, “Walter Bobbie’s direction is taut and dangerous”

VENUS IN FUR is produced at the Lyceum Theatre by Jon B. Platt, Scott Landis, Manhattan Theatre Club Productions, Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove Executive Producer), Jessica R. Jenen, Scott M. Delman, and Classic Stage Company.

Hugh Dancy is appearing with the permission of Actors’ Equity Association. The Producers gratefully acknowledge Actors’ Equity Association for its assistance of this production.

Vanda (Arianda) is a preternaturally talented young actress determined to land the lead in Thomas’ (Dancy) new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Fur. Her emotionally charged audition for the gifted but demanding playwright/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. 

The creative team for VENUS IN FUR includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Acme Sound Partners (sound design), and Thomas Schall (fight direction).

Tickets ($30.00 - $130.00; Premium: $175 for Wednesday matinees, $200.00 for all other performances) for VENUS IN FUR at the Lyceum Theatre are available by calling Telecharge.com at 212-239-6200, online at www.telecharge.com. Tickets will be available at the Lyceum Theatre Box Office (149 West 45th Street) starting Monday, January 23.
