Raleigh Little Theater and Actor’s Comedy Lab present Venus in Fur by David Ives January 2015 Cast: Thomas - Tony Lea, Vanda - Diana Cameron McQueen Production photos by Paul Cory Photography News & Observer, Roy Dicks Theater review: McQueen leads strong ‘Venus in Fur’ at Raleigh Little Theatre “Diana Cameron McQueen attacks the dream role of Vanda with gusto, growing in power as the play unfolds, manifesting Vanda’s dangerous sensuality with total aplomb. Tony Lea knowingly projects Thomas’ initial smirky confidence and later inevitable enthrallment with Vanda’s allure.” More press here.   [vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="1241,1240,1239,1238,1237,1236,1235,1234,1233,1232,1231,1230,1229,1228,1227,1226,1225,1224,1223,1222,1221,1220,1219,1218,1217,1216,1215,1214,1213,1212,1211,1210,1209" css_animation="fadeIn" column_number="4" grayscale="no" images_space="gallery_with_space"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Dicks, News & Observer "Diana McQueen’s transition from ditzy, climbing, predatory actress to smoother-than-silk sophisticate is amazing, and she manages to flip between those personae with an ease that startles.

The interplay between the two with the words “extricable” and “explicable” is tantalizing." -Martha Keravuori, Triangle Arts & Entertainment "Indeed, some of the show’s best moments come when Vanda moves in and out of character with...
