One of the most acclaimed scripts of the last 30 years comes to sexy, stylish life at The Venetian. Dangerous Liaisons tells the story of rivals Marquise De Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont who use sex and passion as a weapon in their thrilling game of revenge and power. Our production will be one of the most jaw dropping and heart stopping versions of the play you will ever see!
In pre-Revolutionary France, the Marquise de Merteuil and her sometime lover the Vicomte de Valmont amuse themselves by plotting the seduction of two women of virtue: the virginal Cécile Volanges and the respectably married Mme de Tourvel. But as their cynical game proceeds, the players’ motives grow deeper – and more deadly.
This Olivier Award-winning drama is based on a sensationally popular novel so scandalous that it was banned in the 19th century as an outrage to public morality. Audiences may be familiar with the story through the 1988 film version starring John Malkovich and Glenn Close or the updated, modernized version Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillipe in 1999.
Directed by Bag&Baggage regular Patrick Spike, with costumes and sets designed by Gregory Pulver (who was responsible for our stunning costumes and sets in The Importance of Being Earnest, Romeo and Juliet, and Twelfth Night), our Dangerous Liaisons will have all the passion, scandal and intrigue that only Bag&Baggage can bring!
Note: Dangerous Liaisons deals with mature subject matter and includes brief nudity and sexual content. The subject matter of this play is most appropriate for audiences ages 18 and older.
