Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing Jack Maroun’s latest play, “Venus”. The play is originally written by David Ives and recently adapted by Lina Khoury and Gabrielle Yammine.
The set is simple and almost looks like an industrial space with a desk and a love seat. But what complements the set is the actors duo, Rita Hayek and Badih Abou Chakra. The script is witty and hilarious, yet very deep and leave you thinking the whole time. Rita and Badih deliver an impeccable performance that never fails to amaze you for almost an hour and half.
Venus is playing at Monot Theater daily, except Mondays, at 8:30 PM. (if I’m not mistaken). Tickets can be purchased at Virgin Megastores for 40,000 and 60,000 LL.
