My review of David Ives’s play Venus in Fur, featuring Hugh Dancy and the newly minted Broadway star Nina Arianda, has just been posted on CultureVulture.net.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

As I say in my review, “As a portrayal of sex, it’s extremely tame — there’s no nudity, and we never even see the whip that figures so heavily in [the main character’s] erotic fantasies. But there is one moment, as Dancy slowly, carefully zips Arianda into a pair of thigh-high black boots — when the play approaches that delicious moment in an erotic encounter when time appears to hold its breath.” You can read the review in its entirety here.
