vania and sonia and masha and spikeTickets for the Broadway Premiere of Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spikewhich comes on the heels of its sold-out run at Lincoln Center, are officially on sale to the general public via telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200. The 17-week strictly limited Broadway engagement is set to begin performances on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at Broadway’s Golden Theatre.  Directed by Nicholas Martin, the Broadway production will feature the entire original company, which includes Sigourney Weaver, David Hyde Pierce, Kristine Nielsen, Genevieve Angelson, Shalita Grant, and Billy Magnussen.  Opening night is set for Thursday, March 14, 2013.

Riffing on some of Anton Chekov’s most time-tested themes, Christopher Durang proves in his hysterically funny and surprisingly affecting new romp, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, that whether you’re in 19th Century Russia or 21st Century Pennsylvania, the human condition never changes.  Vanya (Pierce) and Sonia (Nielsen) have never left the confines of their childhood home – a rambling farmhouse in Bucks County, PA – while having to witness the glamorous exploits of their sister, Masha (Weaver), a famous movie actress, from afar.  A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy,Spike (Magnussen), throws the normally quiet household int0 utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape.  Only one thing is certain: no one will get out of this without looking absolutely ridiculous!

The play premiered at McCarter in September 2012 (with the current Broadway cast) before it transferred directly to Lincoln Center at the end of the McCarter run.  Both runs were sold out.

The creative team will feature David Korins (Scenic Design), Emily Rebholz (Costume Design), JustinTownsend (Lighting Design), and Mark Bennett (Original Music and Sound Design).

The Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike box office will open at the Golden Theatre  on Monday, February 4, 2013. Tickets for the strictly limited engagement range from $60.00 to $130.00.
