Anyone who wears a tiara and sequins is always going to be the winner
JUNE 10-19, 2022 / KREVSKY CENTER
Nominated for six Tony® awards, and winner of the 2013 Tony® for Best Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is one of the most lauded and beloved Broadway plays of recent years. Equal parts send-up and homage to the works of Anton Chekhov, the play centers around middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia, who share their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives.
Suddenly, their imperious movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to the introduction of new conflicts - and the resolution of old ones.
