Nina Arianda Revives Venus in Fur Role on Broadway
Wednesday, November 09, 2011
Nina Arianda is an actress whose star power brightened considerably a couple of years ago because of her Off-Broadway performance in the David Ives play Venus in Fur. Now the play is being revived and Arianda is re-creating her celebrated performance on Broadway, opposite the British actor Hugh Dancy, in the Manhattan Theater Club production that opened recently at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater.
The New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood takes a look at the new production to see if Arianda’s star still shines as brightly in the Broadway lights.
