VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE, by Christopher Durang, opened on Broadway at the Golden Theatre in March 2013. It received 6 Tony Award nominations and won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. It also won every Best Play Award of the 2012-13 season, including the Drama Desk, Drama League, New York Critics, and Outer Critics Circle Awards. The production has subsequently been produced at major theaters throughout the U.S., with more than 70 productions licensed during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
On the heels of its sold-out, smash-hit engagements at McCarter Theatre Center and Lincoln Center Theater, the Broadway production starred Tony and Academy Award nominee Sigourney Weaver, Tony and Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce, and Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen.
WHAT THE CRITICS SAID:
“Even if you’ve never read a word of Chekhov, you’re likely to find plenty to make you laugh: Mr. Hyde Pierce’s skillfully low-key comic discomfort; Ms. Nielsen’s segues from manic eruption into glazed smiling stupor; Ms. Weaver’s game sendup of every self-loving, self-doubting movie queen there ever was. – The New York Times
