The Hippodrome’s VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE Runs Jan. 7- Feb. 1

unnamedThe Hippodrome Theatre presents VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE by Christopher Durang, directed by Dr. David Shelton, on stage January 7-February 1.

VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE is the critically-acclaimed Broadway comedy, and winner of the 2013 TONY AWARD for BEST PLAY!

Welcome to an idyllic Bucks County, Pennsylvania where siblings Vanya (Tom Foley) and Sonia (Sara Morsey) have lived their entire lives in their family’s comfortable farmhouse while their movie star sister Masha (Nell Page) – fresh off her 5th marriage – gallivants around the world with a twenty-something boy-toy named Spike. When Masha and Spike return for a neighbor’s costume party, they are met by the soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra (Lauren Caldwell) – warning about terrible things in the future – and the neighbor’s pretty, aspiring actress niece Nina (Megan Wicks). These quirky, brilliant and unforgettable characters devolve into chaos, rivalry and mayhem… and lucky for us, hilarity ensues for all.
