If you’re hoping for a wild spring break this year, you don’t need to hop on a plane or head to the beach (though you may still want to, considering the winter we’ve had). Instead, head to the Goodman Theatre for a couple of hours of “kinky fun” (The New York Times) with Venus in Fur.
Written by David Ives and directed by Joanie Schultz, Venus in Fur toys with the struggle for power and the politics of sex between the two main characters. Amanda Drinkall and Rufus Collins star as the leads in this production of the play. At once funny, intelligent, and dramatic, the work’s depicts the dynamics of dominance in a seductive and entertaining way.
Venus in Fur opens Saturday, March 8, and will run until Sunday, April 13. Tickets are currently available online here, and additional information about the theatre can be found here.
