The critically acclaimed play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike comes to ACT Theatre, opening to the public on Thursday, October 23. For those unfamiliar with the play, the posters advertising the play around town may be a little puzzling. A robin’s egg blue background with lighthearted fonts, Russian names, three figures in Disney-style, fairy-tale costumes and a posing beefcake—what’s that about? ACT Theatre elucidates:
The play took home top honors from the Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards and the Drama Desk Awards in 2013. For those who love smart comedy and social commentary, it’s a must-see.
