Prizes: Venus in Fur

So, just 'cause all you quiz fans are spicy like that, we have a delightful last-minute prize at tomorrow's quiz: two tix to Venus in Fur, a play currently running Off Broadway at Classic Stage Company. Get this:

"Inspired by the infamous erotic novel of the same name, Venus in Fur takes us behind the scenes at an audition, where a man and a woman blur the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex. A crackling exploration of sexual control and desire, the play is captive to David Ives' famous combination of classic rigor and contemporary wit."

Actually, the erotic novel is not of the same name; strictly speaking, the book is Venus in Furs (mind that final s). It was written by Austrian nutcase Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, whose name gave us the word masochism (but you perverts knew that), and it also inspired this beautifully weird song by the Velvet Underground:

Also, David Ives is an excellent playwright; I directed a production of All in the Timing when I was in college that was one of the true high points of my theatrical career (we got to embed a fake pickax into my roommate's head).

See you tomorrow, pervs.

"Venus in Furs" was also the codename for Photoshop 6.0 Beta. And I just had an "Oh my GOD I'm a dork for knowing that" moment, but this IS a trivia blog.
