VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE is produced by Lincoln Center Theater in association with the McCarter Theatre, where it was commissioned and ran prior to beginning performances in New York.

In Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike playwright Christopher Durang takes characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender and mixes them up; the result is his latest play set in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and his stepsister Sonia (Kristine Nielsen) have lived their entire lives in their family’s farmhouse. While they stayed home to take care of their ailing parents, their sister Masha (Sigourney Weaver) has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress and movie star, leaving Vanya and Sonia to feel trapped and regretful. Their soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra (Shalita Grant) keeps warning them about terrible things in the future, which include a sudden visit from Masha and her twenty-something boy toy Spike (Billy Magnussen).

The performance schedule for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm with matinees Wednesday and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets, priced at $75 (before Nov. 12) and $85 (after Nov. 12), are available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office (150 West 65 Street) or by visiting telecharge.com or www.lct.org.
