Winner! 2013 Tony Award® for Best Play

“Giddy Farce...what makes the zaniness so memorable...the entire ensemble is first rate.”

 —Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

Regret and sibling rivalry fan the flames of laughter in this wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mash-up that equally tickles both the casual theatregoer and the ardent student of the Russian classics.

“A sublime state of hilarity!”

 —New York Magazine

Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister Sonia—along with their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra—are paid a surprise visit by Hollywood star sibling Masha and her twenty something boy toy Spike in a play by Christopher Durang.

“Hugely entertaining!”

 —USA Today

Will Vanya and Sonia ever find happiness? Will Masha sell the Bucks County farmhouse out from under them? And will Spike ever put his pants on?

Original Broadway cast members Kristine Nielsen and Shalita Grant reprise their Tony Award® nominated roles and are joined by two-time Tony Award® winner Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens, 42nd Street) and Obie Award winner Mark Blum: all directed by original Broadway cast member and Tony Award® winner David Hyde Pierce (Curtains).
