Tickets for the Broadway-to-Broadway transfer of Venus in Fur, starring film favorite Hugh Dancy and Tony nominee Nina Arianda, are now on sale. Directed by Walter Bobbie, performances begin on February 7 at the Lyceum Theatre for a run scheduled to end on June 17. The play and its stars drew rave reviews in Manhattan Theatre Club's limited engagement at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in fall 2011.
Loosely adapted from an infamous erotic novel, Venus in Fur centers on power plays between an ambitious young actress (Arianda) and a playwright/director (Dancy) after she arrives for an audition.
Venus in Fur first opened at off-Broadway's Classic Stage Company on January 26, 2010, in a production starring Arianda and Wes Bentley. For more on this exciting play, check out Broadway.com's opening night video feature.
