On Friday, October 10, all the First Nighters—and their guests—gave Venus in Fur a rousing (and, standing!) ovation before heading out to Ela’s Terrace for a party that captured the play’s mood—sexy, mysterious, and a just a little bit kinky.
First Nighters were invited to relax in the Argyos lobby, transformed into a sensuous lounge with black furniture and lusterous red pillows. Tons of red roses—some with black feather “ticklers”—abounded, along with touches of black vinyl linen, black sheer table cloths over red satin linen and, here and there, a pair of handcuffs or a whip!
It was all in good fun, and served as backdrop for the director and actors, who bathed in praise, led by Honorary Producers Geoff and Valerie Fearns. “Venus in Fur was simply terrific theater! Casey did an excellent job directing the play, and the superb performances by Jaimi and Graham made it exceptional.”
