Derived from Chekov

The Tony-Award winning play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged siblings. Vanya, Sonia and Masha were all named after Anton Chekov creations by their theater-loving parents. Several of the play’s elements actually stem from the works of Chekov, and critics have praised the production as a humorous adaptation of Chekov themes that doesn’t require familiarity with Chekov. Vanya and Sonia live in their family home in Pennsylvania and have spent their entire adulthood caring for their now-dead parents. Both unemployed, they depend on movie star sister Masha to pay the bills. Masha returns home and brings new boy-toy Spike and stirs up trouble, constantly sparking up arguments with resentful sister Sonia. Vanya tries his best to keep the peace between them but is often distracted by Spike, who takes advantage of every opportunity to strip down and show off his muscular body. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike premieres tonight at the Allen Theater. The show starts at 7:30 and performances continue through April 25. Tickets are $39 to $79. (Siegel)
