I haven’t freaked out about Nina Arianda on tumblr yet, so here is a mini-ramble about the sheer brilliance of this woman.
I am not necessarily a play-goer. I read lots of plays — for fun and for the sheer plight of the English Ed major. I am a musical theatre lover, and on special occasions and shows I CANNOT pass up, I take the train from Jersey to Manhattan and indulge myself in Broadway.
Venus in Fur has been the show I had been obsessing over for months, and on the day of the Tony’s, I knew I had to act quickly and buy tickets for one of the last performances. Every preview and review I had seen raved about the chemistry of Arianda and Dancy, and I was drawn to Arianda’s electricity.
And, of course, the power-play, gender role questioning play seemed right up my alley - of course it was. I bought tickets for myself and my close friend Michael, a fellow English Ed-er and lover of subversive European texts, and off we were to the city.
I saw the first performance after her Tony win, and I was struck by the power of this show. The first word that came to mind was “immense”. Both characters struggling to win and prove that they are right, coupled with the sexiness of their interactions made for a truly awe-inspiring theatrical experience. I would not have missed this show for the world.
I want to do my best to follow Miss Arianda’s career. This girl has got it. She knows her craft, and it is clear that she lives for acting. She is beautiful, mad, hysterical, and a dynamic performer. I just can’t wait to see what she does next!
