Theatre Pops Rick Harrelson & Heather Sams

Venus in Fur, the smash Broadway hit, dubbed “90 minutes of good, kinky fun” by The New York Times, makes its Oklahoma debut at IDL Ballroom February 19th-22nd, 2015. Theatre Pops presents this delicious play that weaves sex and theatre together for one weekend only.

When Vanda arrives several hours late to her audition for a play based on a nineteenth-century erotic novel, the director, Thomas, is less than impressed. But Vanda’s masterful performance flips the script on Thomas’ expectations and turns the session into a tango for dominance between actress and director, woman and man. Hailed as “seriously smart and very funny” by The New York Times, Venus in Fur is a laugh-out-loud study of the politics of sex and power that’s guaranteed to charm and mesmerize.

Venus In Fur stars Rick Harrelson as Thomas Novachek and Heather Sams as Vanda Jordan.
