Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
"The kind of full-on comedy that's rare on Broadway. It makes you laugh out loud, and repeatedly at that."
Vanya and his sister Sonia live a quiet, country life in their childhood home with plenty of time for self-reflection, and humorous counsel from their housekeeper Cassandra, who believes she has the gift of prophecy. Their pastoral world is upended by the return of their dazzling sister Masha (Beth Broderick), a high-maintenance Hollywood movie star, and Spike, her young über-hot boy-toy. Together this unlikely foursome is plunged into an absurd weekend of sibling rivalry and regrets that are triggered by a wacky costume party. This hilarious mashup of Anton Chekhov's plays, like The Three Sisters and Uncle Vanya, finds Chekov's classic themes of existential loss and longing giving way to hilarity in Christopher Durang's surprising, tender and uproarious family reunion.
Z-Lounge: Arrive early for pre-show musical entertainment by The Tim Curry - Will Dunlap Project in the Topfer Theatre's Main Lounge. Enjoy snacks and Happy Hour drink specials from our full bar.
