A solicitor is summoned to attend a funeral, where he spots a young woman in black whose appearance is unsettling—a ghostly presence locals refuse to discuss. But let's call a spade a spade: declaring a play to be "the most terrifying live theater experience in the world" is pretty bold. I mean, it's still just people on stage, right?

Due to popular demand, Sweet and Sour Productions is back with another run of "Venus in Fur," David Ives's sexy, award-winning 2011 play. Missed last December's run? It tells the story of Thomas, a writer holding auditions for his new play based on the 1870 novel, "Venus in Fur."

Muggles Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner's hilarious Potter-fest is a rapid reenactment of all seven books in 70 minutes, complete with a fire-breathing dragon and a "real" game of quidditch. Either way, it's probably the most intense Harry Potter marathon you'll ever encounter.
