Chase away the winter blues with this Tony Award Winning Comedy

Posted on 01/09/2015 12:00am by Jennifer Madigan

Chase away the winter blues with Christopher Durang’s hilarious and endearing comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, now playing at The Public Theatre Jan 23 – Feb 1. 

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, this hit Broadway comedy was hailed as “hugely entertaining” (USA today), and “deliriously funny” (NY Times). Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia (named after Chekhov characters by their hyper-educated parents) live uneventful lives until their self-absorbed movie-star sister Masha returns home with her 20-something boy-toy Spike in tow to shake things up. Add to the mix, a wanna-be young actress named Nina, a housekeeper named Cassandra who sees into the future, and a delightful rant about the joy of life before cell phones, and this is one family reunion you’ll want to attend! Contains some adult language and one hot guy in his underwear.
