Tickets to BLT’s final production of our 77th Season, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, a comedy by Christopher Durang are now available to BLT Members. The featured players include Heidi Nicholls Bowser, Katy Closkey-Wayne, Kyle DePasquale, Renee DiAlesandro, Rik Medic, and Laila Tyler.
Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Named after Chekhov’s characters by their theater-enthusiast professor parents, Vanya and Sonia have not had to grow up. After spending their adulthood looking after their dead parents, neither has a job, and money is provided by their movie star sister Masha, who owns the house and pays the bills. Suddenly, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike runs May 4-6 and 8-12, 2018. Tickets will go on sale to the General Public beginning April 26.
