In this Tony-nominated celebration of betrayal and sexual intrigue, 18th-century French aristocratic rivals use sex as a weapon to carry out their cruel schemes.  Based on Choderlos de Laclos’ infamous 1782 novel of ruthless manipulation, this sizzling display of artful wickedness is set in the salons and boudoirs of pre-Revolutionary France.
