Critics are raving about the chemistry between Nina Arianda and Hugh Dancy in the Broadway premiere of David Ives’ Venus in Fur. Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson saw the show at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, then picked up his pen to capture the push-pull relationship between an ambitious actress and the playwright/director of a new script with sado-masochistic undertones. Take a look at his take on this sexy show, then get tickets to see this talented duo during their limited Broadway engagement.
About the Artist: With a desire to celebrate the magic of live theater and those who create it, and with a deep reverence for such touchstones as the work of Al Hirschfeld and the wall at Sardi’s, Squigs is happy and grateful to be among those carrying on the traditions where theater and caricature meet. He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home. Click to e-mail Squigs. Photo by Matthew Murphy
