VIDEO: Sigourney Weaver Chats 'VANYA & SONIA' on THE TALK

On yesterday's The Talk on CBS, Sigourney Weaver shared stories about her famous roles though the years and touted that with her new Broadway role in the Tony-nominated play "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" has now made her "in the best shape of her life." Check out the appearance below!

The Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is now playing at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues). 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!

The creative team will feature David Korins (Scenic Design), Emily Rebholz (Costume Design), Justin Townsend (Lighting Design), and Mark Bennett (Original Music and Sound Design).

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.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is produced by Joey Parnes, Larry Hirschhorn, and John O'Boyle, in association with McCarter Theatre and Lincoln Center Theater.
