Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

April 30, May 1, 3,7,8, & 10 Thursday & Friday 7pm, Sunday 2pm

“In Partnership With Business & Estate Advisers & Koser Radio Group”

Vanya Sonia Mesha Spike

Tickets $14

By Christopher Durang

Nominated for six Tony Awards, Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” is one of the most lauded and beloved Broadway plays of recent years.

Northern Star Theatre Co. presents in partnership with Business & Estate Advisers and the Koser Radio Group for our May comedy –  “VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE”. Written by  master of comedy, Christopher Durang,  this comedy takes characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender and mixes them up. The utterly hilarious and occasionally touching result is his latest play set in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The show opens Thursday, April 30 , Friday, May 1, Thursday & Friday May 7 & 8 at 7p.m. and for two Sunday Matinees April 3 and 10 at 2 p.m. All tickets are $10 and are reserved seating.

In this hilarious comedy of ill manners, the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play, Vanya (AJ Hakari) and his adopted sister Sonia (Kyanne Pepper) are living a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, while their sister Masha (Candace Falk) travels the world as a movie star. Just as their cleaning woman issues a warning about terrible events in their future, Masha returns for an unannounced visit with her 20-something boy toy Spike (Brandon Brown) in tow. When the innocent and star-struck young Nina (Maggie Klonowski) visits from next-door hoping to meet the world famous Masha Hardwicke, Masha feels threatened – and so begins an unforgettable weekend building to a fever pitch of rivalry, regret and racket. Mixing Chekhov sensibilities with modern cringe-worthy flair, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a delightfully off-kilter romp that critics have hailed “a sublime state of hilarity” and “a zany joy!”

Tickets can be purchased online at the NSTC website:  www.northernstartheatreco.org or by calling (715) 736-4444 and leaving the requested information.  Bob’s Bistro is open 1 hour before show time for light suppers, beverages and dessert – the Bistro menu can also be found on the NSTC website.  NSTC is located in beautiful downtown Rice Lake, fully air-conditioned and handicapped accessible.
