PHOTO CALL: Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia..., With Sigourney Weaver, David Hyde Pierce and Kristine Nielsen

McCarter Theatre Center's world-premiere production of Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which plays the New Jersey venue prior to its Off-Broadway run at Lincoln Center Theater, officially opened in Princeton Sept. 14 following previews that began Sept. 7.

The cast features three-time Oscar nominee Sigourney Weaver, four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce, Obie Award winner Kristine Nielsen, Genevieve Angelson, Shalita Grant and Billy Magnussen. "It’s a lovely day at Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and his stepsister Sonia's ( Kristine Nielsen) farmhouse in Bucks County, PA," according to press notes. "But instead of spending the morning strolling through their cherry orchard, these wacky siblings have their hands full with a prophetic cleaning woman, a neighborhood costume party, and a surprise visit from their movie-star sister Masha ( Sigourney Weaver) and her studly new boy-toy, Spike (Billy Magnussen)."
