Highlights From Venus in Fur on Broadway

Tony-nominated for her Broadway debut last spring in Born Yesterday, Nina Arianda returns to the role that first brought her acclaim — Vanda, a struggling actress in David Ives' two-hander Venus in Fur. This sexually-charged comedy pits Vanda against Thomas (Hugh Dancy), an author and director who auditions Vanda for a role in his newest work, a play based on an 1870s novel by German author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, for whom "masochism" is named.
