Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home that is owned by their movie-star sister, Masha. When Masha swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike, old resentments flare up, leading to threats to sell the house.
“How’s this for a proven recipe for hilarity: Start with a few bitter morsels from The Cherry Orchard, add a dollop of self-pity from Three Sisters, toss in a scoop of angst from Uncle Vanya and a dash of hope from The Seagull, sprinkle the whole Chekhovian concoction with a bit of fairy dust from Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and then, once you’ve steamed and solidified the whole woeful mixture, skewer it with a voodoo needle. Christopher Durang did just that in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and came home with Broadway’s Tony Award for the best play of 2013.” -Huffington Post
“Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art… deliriously funny…a heedless good time.” —NY Times
