Final Reviews of Venus In Fur

Alberta Theatre Projects couldn't be happier with its first production of the 2014-15 season. It was funny, provocative, sexy, and intelligent. Wonderfully written by David Ives, the lines leapt off the page thanks to the performances of Tim Campbell and Amanda Lisman, under the direction of Tracey Flye. Here are some of the reviews:

"With a sparkling cast deliciously handled by director Tracey Flye, Venus is a ball to watch"
- Stephen Hunt (Calgary Herald - 4 1/2 stars)

"(Lisman) Is the essential performance necessary to turn the sparks of sex and humour into lightening bolts of erotica and repressed passions."
- Louis B Hobson (Calgary Sun - 3 1/2 stars)

"Alberta Theatre Projects consistent delivers amazing productions filled with intrigue and top-notch performances. So when I say their latest production, Venus In Fur, is amongst their best, you can begin to grasp how stunning it is."
- Amy Jo Espedveidt (CalgaryIsAwesome.com)

"Alberta Theatre Projects' season opener is funny, sexy, and often intense."
- Maureen McNamee (FFWD Weekly)

The next production is the World-premiere of Butcher by Nicolas Billon - the first play in the new Enbridge playRites Series of New Canadian Plays. A political thriller that challenges our modern-day conceptions of justice and vengeance.

Butcher runs from October 17 to November 1. You can get your tickets at (403)294-7402 or online at www.atplive.com.
