"Brilliant...a glitterati cast"
– CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

Jun 20 - Aug 2, 2015 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 35 minutes with one intermission

Christopher Durang's "deliriously funny" (The New York Times) Broadway hit makes its Chicago debut.

Siblings Vanya and Sonia have spent their adult years trapped in mundane lives at their family’s cottage, caring for their ailing parents. Meanwhile their self-involved sister Masha, a glamorous movie star, has traveled the world in decadent style. After their soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra warns Vanya and Sonia of impending doom, Masha arrives unannounced, accompanied by her hunky young lover Spike. When Masha reveals plans that will upend the family, long-repressed resentments bubble over in a weekend full of wild costume parties, voodoo dolls and surprise romance.
