Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is Broadway's Tony® Award-winning Best Play of 2013, and you only have until August 25th to see it! This raucous and surprisingly poignant smash hit by Tony winner Christopher Durang stars Tony and Emmy® Award winner David Hyde Pierce, Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen and Tony winner Julie White.
Vanya (Pierce) and his sister Sonia (Nielsen) live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up. But their sister Masha (White) escaped many years ago and became a famous movie star! When Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike (Tony nominee Billy Magnussen), their prophesizing housekeeper Cassandra (Tony nominee Shalita Grant) correctly predicts an unforgettable weekend of rivalry, regret and generally hilarious racket. By the end of their impromptu family reunion, this lovable bunch won't ever be the same!
Tony nominee Nicholas Martin directs an explosively funny cast in this laugh-out-loud new American comedy. It’s Durang at his unpredictable, zany best… Don’t miss it!
