Highlights From Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike on Broadway, Starring Sigourney Weaver

After stops at Princeton's McCarter Theatre Center and Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi Newhouse Theater, Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike comes to Broadway's John Golden Theatre. Nicholas Martin directs the touching and outrageous comedy set in Bucks County, PA, with characters and themes inspired by the world of Chekhov. When movie star Masha (Sigourney Weaver) returns home to the family farm, she brings out feelings of regret and resentment in brother Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and stepsister Sonia (Kristine Nielsen), who still live there after many years of caring for their ailing parents. Cleaning woman Cassandra (Shalita Grant) warns that terrible things are to come, with Masha's boy toy Spike (Billy Magnussen) arriving on cue.
