It wasn’t too long ago that I signed on to direct Venus in Fur at The Loft at Union County Performing Arts Center, or UCPAC as it’s known in the Rahway community. And now, here we are, prepping to open the show on Friday, July 8th!
Part of the prep for a show is the publicity aspect of it, which essentially means cast photos. This week, I got to sit down with my cast (Sean Lough and Juliana Valente) and do a photoshoot with them to promote the show. And today, I’m excited to premiere the results!

Curious what the show is about? Well…
Auditions are over for the day, and Thomas still hasn’t found the perfect actress for his adaptation of a 19th-century erotic novel. Vanda stumbles into the bare rehearsal studio, soaking wet and hours late. Before he can stop her, Vanda strips down to saucy lingerie, wiggles into a white period dress and mysteriously becomes his elusive leading lady. But will the power play for sexual dominance be limited to the stage?
The show is being presented by Fearless Productions, LLC., and is produced by Jared Kelner and Kristin Barber, with Samantha Wolf serving as the production stage manager.
This play is recommended for adults as it contains sexual situations and language.
Venus in Fur will be presented July 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 8pm; and July 10 and 17 at 2pm inside The Loft at Union County Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20.00. (Limited seating is available, and it is highly recommended that you purchase your tickets ahead of time to guarantee seating.)
