Staff Reviews

“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike won a Tony award for best play. It’s this blending of Chekhov & Durang’s modern play-writing. It has hints of melancholy like you’d find in Chekhov’s works mixed with modern quirks that just make this play truly funny. It walks the line between humor and the secret pain that most families carry around. It’s especially great if you think of the original cast as you read it. They’re getting ready to perform it here in Austin, so you can read it and then see it on the stage.”
