Directed by Joel Sass, the Tony-winning comedy continues through Aug. 31.

The cast features Charles Janasz as Vanya, Suzanne Warmanen as Sonia, Candy Buckley as Masha, Joshua James Campbell as Spike, Isabell Monk O'Connor as Cassandra and Ali Rose Dachis as Nina.

"This hilarious comedy of ill manners introduces audiences to Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia, both of whom are living a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, while their sister Masha travels the world as a movie star," according to press notes. "Just as their cleaning woman Cassandra issues a warning about terrible events in their future, Masha returns for an unannounced visit with her 20-something boy toy Spike in tow -- and so begins an unforgettable weekend building to a fever pitch of rivalry, regret and racket."

The artistic team includes Todd Rosenthal (set designer), Ilona Somogyi (costume designer), Barry Browning (lighting designer), Sean Healy (sound designer), Carla Steen (dramaturg), Lucinda Holshue (voice and dialect coach), Justin Hossle (stage manager), Jason Clusman (assistant stage manager) and Adin Walker (assistant director).
