Riffing on some of Anton Chekov's most time-tested themes, Christopher Durang proves in this hysterically funny and surprisingly affecting romp, (transferring from the McCarter Theater Center, NJ) that whether you're in 19th Century Russia or 21st Century Pennsylvania, human nature never changes.
Step-siblings Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and Sonia (Kristine Nielsen) have never left the confines of their childhood home (a rambling farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania), while having to witness the glamorous exploits of their sister, Masha (Sigourney Weaver), a famous movie actress, from afar.
A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something lover, Spike (Billy Magnussen), throws the normally peaceful household into utter choas as both residents and visitors are swept up in a heady mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Only one thing is certain: no one will get out of this without looking utterly ridiculous!
Show starts at 8pm, so let's meet for drinks beforehand at 6:30pm nearby (place TBD). Show is 2.5 hours.
