Guess What? The 2013 Tony Award Winner for Best Play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is now playing at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles through March 9th, 2014 and one lucky person will win a pair of tickets to this wildly entertaining show on Tuesday, February 11th at 8pm.
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a Chekhovian mash-up that tickles both the casual theatre goer and the ardent student of the Russian classics. It’s a wickedly funny comedy about regret and sibling rivalry. USA Today calls it “Hugely entertaining!” and New York Magazine describes it as “A sublime state of hilarity!”
Here’s a glimpse of the humorous plot: Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister Sonia—along with their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra—are paid a surprise visit by Hollywood star sibling Masha and her twenty something boy toy Spike. Will Vanya and Sonia ever find happiness? Will Masha sell the Bucks County farmhouse out from under them? And will Spike ever put his pants on?
For the Taper production, original Broadway cast members Kristine Nielsen and Shalita Grant reprise their Tony Award® nominated roles and are joined by two-time Tony Award® winner Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens, 42nd Street) and Obie Award winner Mark Blum: all directed by original Broadway cast member and Tony Award® winner David Hyde Pierce (Curtains).
