A special post-show conversation moderated by WBUR's Anthony Brooks with director Daniel Goldstein (Venus in Fur), M. Bevin O'Gara (Becoming Cuba), and Christopher Wigle (Huntington Producing Director), following the 7:30pm performance of Venus in Fur.

He is the recipient of numerous broadcast wards.

Christopher Wigle is in his 14th season at the Huntington, where he works with Casting Director Alaine Alldaffer and production directors to identify, audition, and select the actors who appear in the Huntington's productions.


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
