Director Daniel Goldstein [lends the] material a blistering immediacy. Give him credit for going juicily, all-the-way crazy when the script calls for reality to evanesce.

Not very often, but sometimes a show is just terrific. This is the case with Daniel Ives' Venus in Fur now playing at the Huntington Theatre Company's BU Theatre. Funny, clever, sexy and provocative, this show is absolutely don't miss terrific. Director Goldstein has seamlessly created an American tango between the two gifted actors. The production is an intricate dance both energetic and sexually steamy.

As directed by Daniel Goldstein, this work seems to suspend time, and brings to mind the fabled line from “All about Eve”: “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride”. As directed by Goldstein and enacted by these two terrific actors, it’s a sexy, thoughtful and engaging battle, and often hilarious.
