STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at Huntington Theatre's VENUS IN FUR, Opening Tomorrow!
Huntington Theatre Company kicks off 2014 with David Ives' sexy Broadway smash hit Venus in Fur, deemed "90 minutes of good, kinky fun," by The New York Times. Daniel Goldstein (God of Carnage) returns to the Huntington to the direct the 2012 Tony Award nominee for Best Play. Performances will begin on January 3 at the Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre. Check out a sneak peek below!
Chris Kipiniak (Metamorphoses and Macbeth on Broadway) makes his Huntington debut as Thomas, an ambitious director struggling to find the perfect actress to play the leading role in his new adaptation of the erotic novel, Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Mosoch (the inspiration for the term masochism). Andrea Syglowski (Benefit of the Doubt at Roundabout Theatre Company and The Cherry Orchard at New York's Mint Theater Company) plays one of the most coveted roles in contemporary American theatre: Vanda, the actress who seduces her way into Thomas's audition room, cast, and fantasies. Her charged audition becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse as the lines blur between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.
The Huntington's production of Venus in Fur will feature scenic design by Matt Saunders (Associate Artistic Director of New Paradise Laboratories, The Fab 4 Reach the Pearly Gates at PS 122.); costume design by Charles Schoonmaker (God of Carnage and A Long and Winding Road at the Huntington); lighting design by M.L. Geiger (international tour of Mabou Mines' Dollhouse, and Oslo Elsewhere at 59E59); and sound design by Darron L. West(Tony Award for Peter and the Starcatcher on Broadway). Production stage manager is Emily F. McMullen. Stage manager is Kevin Schlagle.
