Southern Rep Theatre kicks off its 26th Season Mainstage Series with VENUS IN FUR by David Ives at The Contemporary Arts Center directed by Aimée Hayes starring Todd d'Amour and Veronica Russell. In what The New York Times describes as "seriously smart and very funny," VENUS IN FUR is a frisky game of cat and mouse in which the lines blur between reality and play, seduction and power, and love and sex. The production runs for fourteen performances only opening January 9 and running through January 24. BroadwayWorld has a first look at highlights from the show below!
