SOUTHERN REP ANNOUNCES OPEN AUDITIONS FOR
VENUS IN FUR BY DAVID IVES
"David Ives' wildly intelligent and sometimes frightening new play"
- The New Yorker
New Orleans - Southern Rep Theatre will be holding open auditions for David Ives' VENUS IN FUR November 7, 2012 from 4pm-6:30pm. VENUS IN FUR will open as the first production of the Southern Rep's 26th Mainstage Season. Performed at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans, VENUS IN FUR will run January 9-24, 2013.
This sexy and seductive 2011-12 Tony Nominated comedy introduces Vanda, a seemingly unassuming, talented actress, determined to win the lead role by any means necessary in Thomas' scintillating new play. A frisky game of cat and mouse ensues and suddenly the lines blur between reality and play, seduction and power, and love and sex. An electrifyingly funny play that was "the most acclaimed new Broadway play of the season."
