Venus in Fur - 2012 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Vanda (Tony Award® nominee Nina Arianda) is a preternaturally talented young actress determined to land the lead in Thomas’ (Emmy® Award nominee Hugh 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 that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.

Featured Reviews For Venus in Fur


'Venus in Fur' - NY Daily News
Whoever said lightning doesn't strike twice hasn't seen Nina Arianda reprise her breakout role in David Ives' clever but repetitive comedy "Venus in Fur." Playing Vanda, a seemingly ditzy and desperate actress auditioning for a job, she's so funny, smart and sexy that watching her brings unexpected jolts like an electrical shock.

Venus In Fur On Broadway: My Review - Village Voice
Her vehicle is not all smoothly entertaining--the play within a play is less riveting than the actor-versus-playwright dynamic, and without an intermission, it's a long sit--but for a pristinely acted literary sex comedy, it's hard to beat Venus In Fur, except with a stick.
