Seduction and Domination in Venus in Fur
from WBUR 90.9 Radio Boston, January 9, 2014

Venus in Fur's Andrea Syglowski ("Vanda") and director Daniel Goldstein speak with Anthony Brooks and Meghna Chakrabarti on WBUR 90.9 Radio Boston. Original airdate: January 9, 2014.

From WBUR:

Leather, lingerie and a dog collar — that’s what the character of Vanda wears throughout most of the Huntington Theatre Company’s production of Venus in Fur, which is playing through early February. Vanda is an aspiring actress who shows up late for an audition and then tangles with the director, Thomas, for the next 90 minutes.

Based loosely on David Ives’ 19th-century erotic novella, Venus in Furs, the play is all about seduction, submission and domination. But what makes it great drama is that it’s never quite clear who’s being seduced, who’s being dominated and who holds the power.


About Venus in Fur

Vanda has her eyes on the lead role in Venus in Fur, an adaptation of the classic erotic novel. Her charged audition for the director becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse as the lines blur between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex. This hilarious and sexy new comedy was a smash Broadway hit.

Rated V: Very adult comedy. Includes explicit language and sexual content.

"This savage, sexy, smart, and funny new play took my breath away. Director Daniel Goldstein set our stage on fire with God of Carnage, and I know he will make our new production the hottest date night in Boston."— Peter DuBois
