Directed by Tony winner David Hyde Pierce, who starred in the Broadway engagement of the acclaimed comedy, performances were originally scheduled to continue through March 9. Due to ticket demand, the run has been extended by a week through March 16.
Pierce based the production on the work of Nicholas Martin, who directed the Broadway staging. Martin had been announced to direct the Los Angeles production but was forced to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts.
Set in 21st century Bucks County, PA, with hints of 19th-century Russia, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, according to press notes, is a "riotous comedy with the Chekhovian set-up of a middle-aged Vanya and his stepsister, Sonia, who live together in their ancestral farmhouse, complete with a pond and a cherry orchard. Their normally quiet existence is thrown into upheaval by the surprise visit from their glamorous, movie-star sibling, Masha, and her 20-something boyfriend, Spike, the unlikely prophecies of their cleaning lady and an all too important costume party."
The production features sets by David Korins, costumes by Gabriel Berry, lighting by David Weiner and original music and sound design by Mark Bennett. The production stage manager is David S. Franklin.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
