Local actress Amanda Drinkall plays the female lead in the Goodman Theatre's current production of Venus in Furs. Running through April 13, the piece illustrates a power struggle between a director and a young actress auditioning for a role.

In the play, which the New York Times referred to as "90 minutes of good, kinky fun," Drinkall wears some rather risque costumes. In fact, she describes her current job as "running around in leather lingerie in front of 900 strangers" each night. Here's how she got in shape to just that.
