Role: Vanda Jordan/Vanda von Dunayev
Venus in Fur is probably still my favorite show I’ve ever done. Intense and continuous, this two-hander one act was definitely a huge challenge for me that also helped me showcase what I could do. It definitely got me on people’s minds, and people still tell me they remember it which it really the highest compliment.

Reviews for Venus in Fur:
“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.” Roy Dicks, News & Observer, 2015
“Under Rod Rich’s direction, McQueen ably prosecutes Vanda’s increasingly extreme forms of literary and gender criticism. The actor repeatedly turns on a dime between the aloof, seductive character in the play-within-the-play and the actress trying out for a show.” Byron Woods for Indy Week, 2015
“This little game of cat-and-mouse leaves us wondering just which role is which, as these two fine actors bring the play to an astonishing close.” CVNC review, 2015
