The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park will captivate your attention with their current production Venus in Fur. It is an adaptation of 2010 Off Broadway hit that intrigued audiences and left them questioning what is normal in a relationship and how far can that term be pushed. Audiences prepare to be enticed, with this intelligently stimulating and highly seductive dark comedy.

The story is of a playwright/director Thomas. He is passionate about his adaptation of a classic erotic masterpiece. He has been interviewing all day various actresses to play the female role in his production. Thomas is tired and frustrated about ready to leave the office and go home. Vanda, an out of work actress comes in out of the rain seeking this opportunity to read for the role. Thomas tries to get her to go away and come back at another time for a reading. She won’t take no for an answer, and a chemistry develops between them. They start acting out the character’s thoughts and intentions in this story. Thomas and Vanda start to become confused as this goes on blurring the line as to what is the story and what is real.

KJ Sanchez has done a excellent job in directing this stage production of Venus in Fur. She persistently draws out the characters vulnerabilities, and desires, almost like peeling an onion exposing more. Previously, she directed Seven Spots on the Sun for the Playhouse.

Greta Wohlrabe in the role of Vanda was amazing, she could switch between the character’s many levels seamlessly whether silly, to intense, next commanding.

PJ Sosko in the role of Thomas was driven, passionate, silly, obsessive. He made it believable.

Performances of Venus in Fur continue until May 17 with variety of shows times both evening and matinee. Prices will range from $30 to $75 per person. More information on Venus in Fur or other Playhouse production are available at www.cincyplay.com
