Three Day Hangover Slings Back the Vodka with DRUNKLE VANYA, Beginning Tonight Off-Broadway


Three Day Hangover is slinging back the vodka in their latest booze-filled theatrical extravaganza. They've partnered with Tolstoy's Lounge, a brand-new midtown hot spot inspired by the works of Leo Tolstoy and other luminaries, affectionately known as Tolstoy's boys.

DRUNKLE VANYA is an irreverent and wonderfully tragic take on Chekhov's family "dramedy", adapted and directed by Lori Wolter Hudson. Family game night goes horribly awry, giving you a front row seat for "shots" of all kinds. Oh, the (Cards Against) Humanity!

Customize your experience by choosing your ticket "class" and enjoying all the perks that come with it. Dine like the Imperial Family at the Tsar's table where you'll enjoy a feast of fine foods, an OPEN BAR, and exclusive VIP seating. Join the Aristocracy or Bourgeoisie and see how the other half lives. Or save your rubles and join the other Working Class or Peasants by the bar.

The cast features Joel Rainwater (The Great Divorce) as Vanya, Amanda Sykes (The Gorges Motel) as Yelena, Christopher Tocco (His Girl Friday) as Astrov, Leah Walsh (The Compass Podcast) as Sonya, Sean Tarrant (3DH's Tartuffe!) as The Professor, and Josh Sauerman (Drunk Shakespeare) as Waffles. Caitlin Cisek is the costume designer. The production stage manager is Brooke Bell and assistant stage manager is Serena Montsma. DRUNKLE VANYA is produced by Roman Gambourg, Misha von Shats and Three Day Hangover. David Hudson is the general manager and Beth Gardiner is the line producer.

DRUNKLE VANYA is a limited eight week engagement beginning tonight, November 10th. All performances are at 7:30pm at Tolstoy's Lounge, upstairs at The Russian Samovar, 256 W. 52nd St. New York, NY 10019. Runtime is 90 minutes. A full calendar and tickets, which range from $9-$149, are available at or by calling 1-866-811-4111. There is a full bar available throughout the performance, and a selection of small plates curated by The Russian Samovar.
