Underground Velvet

. March 3, 2014.

Venus in Furs, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's classic literary tale of BDSM naughtiness, has inspired countless artists—for example The Velvet Underground's Lou Reed (RIP), who wrote a classic tune about it. More recently, playwright David Ives drew from the work when he wrote this play by the same name, also about a playwright trying to adapt Venus in Fur(s). Phew. Is that meta-textual enough for you? The two-person play, of course, descends into a game of sexual cat-and-mouse involving fur and, of course, shiny boots of leather.

Opening night is Friday, March 7, 8pm. Runs through Sunday, April 6. Thursday 7:30pm, Friday-Saturday 8pm, Saturday 3pm, Sunday 2pm. $22-41. Performance Network Theater, 120 E. Huron St. 734-663-0681. performancenetwork.org
