Christopher Durang is a master of comedic mashups. This time it’s Chekhov’s classic dour character types that get tossed into a modern day blender with a dash of sibling rivalry, a dollop of beefcake, a pinch of naughty and the resulting stew brings more than a cup of laughs. Vanya, and his sister Sonia are stuck in their childhood home, while their sister Masha has been traveling the world as a famous movie star. She returns for a surprise visit her hot young boy-toy, Spike. Throw in a prophetic cleaning woman, an aspiring actress, and a neighborhood costume party, and we’re in for a wacky weekend. A Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation, this hysterical homage to Chekhov’s classic is touching and relentlessly funny, with a delightfully happy resolution!
