Orlando Shakespeare Theater Adds VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE Performance

Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF has added an additional matinee performance of the Tony Award-winning comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are available now by calling (407) 447-1700 ext. 1, visiting, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 East Rollins Street).

"Vanya has quickly earned outstanding acclaim and rave reviews from Orlando Shakes patrons and local critics," said Orlando Shakes' Director of Marketing Communications Melissa Mason Braillard. "We're adding this extra matinee performance to make sure more people in Central Florida get a chance to see this hilarious, award-winning production."

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike earned acclaim in its 2013 Broadway debut; awards included the Tony Award for Best Play, the Outer Circle Critics Award for Best Play, the Drama League Award for Best Production of a Play, the Drama Desk Award for Best Play, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Production and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Play. Critics called it "a comic tour de force" (Village Voice), "the funniest play in town" (Bloomberg News), an "utterly refreshing...sweet, witty play with a huge pop culture appetite" (Associated Press) and "terrifically kooky" (Entertainment Weekly).

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a comedy about two dysfunctional siblings and the wild weekend that unfolds when their famous sister returns with her hunky new boy toy, appearing in the Goldman Theater from March 30 - May 1, 2016.

Orlando Shakes production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is directed by Eleanor Holdridge and features actors Philip Nolen as Vanya, Anne Hering as Sonia, Carol Halstead as Masha, Benjamin Boucvalt as Spike, Fredena J. Williams as Cassandra, and Kathryn Miller as Nina.

Orlando Shakespeare Theater is supported by United Arts of Central Florida, host of the collaborative Campaign for the Arts. Orlando Shakespeare Theater is also sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. This project is also funded in part by Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
