STAGE TUBE: Randall Goes 'Honey Badger' on VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE

‚Äč

Randall, the irreverent video-narrator who became an overnight internet sensation with his now famous "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger" video, has done one of his signature voice-overs on production footage from Christopher Durang's new comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, starring Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce. Watch his take on the show below!

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is now playing a strictly limited, 17-week premiere Broadway engagement at the Golden Theatre. Directed by Nicholas Martin, the production features, along with Ms. Weaver and Mr. Hyde Pierce, Kristine Nielsen, Shalita Grant, Genevieve Angelson and Billy Magnussen. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike began performances on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 and officially opened on Thursday, March 14, 2013.

Riffing on some of Anton Chekov's most time-tested themes, Christopher Durang proves in his hysterically funny and surprisingly affecting new romp, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, that whether you're in 19th Century Russia or 21st Century Pennsylvania, the human condition never changes. Vanya (Pierce) and Sonia (Nielsen) have never left the confines of their childhood home - a rambling farmhouse in Bucks County, PA - while having to witness the glamorous exploits of their sister, Masha (Weaver), a famous movie actress, from afar. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike (Magnussen), throws the normally quiet household int0 utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating 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 absolutely ridiculous!

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike was commissioned and developed by McCarter Theatre and co-produced by McCarter Theatre and Lincoln Center Theatre. The play premiered at McCarter in September 2012 (with the current Broadway cast) before it transferred directly to Lincoln Center at the end of the McCarter run. Both runs were sold out.
