BWW Review: VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE A Warm Hearted Comedic WinnerBWW Review: VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE A Warm Hearted Comedic Winner
by Frank Benge - Nov 14, 2016

What do you get when you cross Christopher Durang, the master of anxious comedy, with Anton Chekhov, the master of Russian despair? You get VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE, an evening of melancholia and mirth. While Durang starts with Chekhov he soon runs off in every direction. Chekhov and Walt Disney? California Suite and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie? Why not? He ends up delivering a warmhearted, surprisingly personable play that is a mixture of clever and sweet that's hard to pull off. The production now on stage at The Wimberley Playhouse pulls it off beautifully. Chekhov's characters are full of angst and dissatisfaction, and so are Durang's. The key difference is that while tragic Chekhov can be funny, Durang is pretty much flat out bonkers. (more...)

Perpetual Students: A Historic Look at Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on BroadwayPerpetual Students: A Historic Look at Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on Broadway
by Alexa Criscitiello - Oct 30, 2016

The Cherry Orchard is Anton Chekhov's masterpiece about a family on the edge of ruin-and a country on the brink of revolution. The story of Lyubov Ranevskaya and her family's return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure captures a people-and a world-in transition, and presents us with a picture of humanity in all its glorious folly. By turns tragic and funny, The Cherry Orchard still stands as one of the great plays of the modern era. (more...)
