I had a wonderful opportunity to see a production with ACT, (American Contemporary Theater), recently of Venus in Fur, and adaptation to the novella written by Sachor Von Masoch whose name is the origin of Masochism. If you are not familiar with the book, (he woos his Wanda, a beautiful, wealthy, young woman and “transforms” her into his cruel venus then leaves her in the end), which begs the question of who is master, who is slave, no worries! This production spells it out with a contemporary edge that is delightfully cunning, yet not overly clever. I was fixated for all 90 minutes. Brilliant!
And right now, ACT is offering a special promo for kinksters and curious ones. Here it is:
