    The Melsheimer Family
    Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York
    Christopher Durang puts despair to hilarious effect, as middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia bicker and pine about the dashed dreams and squandered hopes of their lives in the sunny Morning Room of the family farmhouse in Bucks County, PA.

    When their movie-star sister, Masha, suddenly swoops in with her new boy-toy, Spike, old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Joined on the scene by their prophetic housekeeper Cassandra, and a dewy aspiring actress named Nina - whose youthful prettiness troubles Masha’s precariously propped-up vanity – they prepare to attend a neighbor’s costume party and the stage is set for a giddy farce on Chekhovian themes.

    Clips from Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

    …a comic fireworks show. Between [Anne] Guynn's dead-perfect, hilarious Maggie Smith impression to [Polly Firestone] Walker's savage Snow White tantrum, it sails through with perfect timing and delivery.

    [Annali] Fuchs-Wackowski is a scene stealer as the tormented prophet with a penchant for voodoo. I loved her energy and commitment to Cassandra's plotting and scheming. She's an actress who can embody a role beyond the written dialogue.

    -Santa Maria Sun

    All the performers put a lot of animation and enthusiasm into the more over-the-top farcical elements of the show.

    Late in the show, Firestone Walker gets to show her character's more vulnerable side. This leads to a hilarious dual crying scene with [Anne] Guynn that had the whole audience laughing.
