When the show – starring Carrie Jennings and Bradley Moore, who also directs – hit the Vibe Nightclub stage in February my review concluded “If you seek the rewards of edgy contemporary theater in Nashville please don’t miss Venus in Fur.” My opinion hasn’t changed.
Want to see if you agree? Then catch one (or more) of the four 7:30 p.m. shows at the Vibe (1713 Church St.); the doors open at 6:30 p.m. and there’s a full cash bar open every night to get you in the proper frame of mind. Tonight is a pay-what-you-can performance of the show that runs 90 minutes with no intermission; the regular price for tickets is $12 and all major credit cards are accepted at the box office.
A final note: Venus in Fur is recommended for mature audiences because of thematic elements and language. Nothing against family entertainments, but a show grown-ups can savor is a very fine thing too, particularly when it is as well done as this offering.
