I recently saw Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike—the dark comedy that nabbed the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play of the Year. The story follows Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and his two sisters: the self-doubting Sonia (Kristine Nielsen) and the movie star Masha (Sigourney Weaver) over the span of a few days spent at their childhood home in Pennsylvania. The bitingly funny and often poignant play examines familial bonds—Vanya and Sonia’s relationship with their successful sister; struggles with confidence—Sonia’s desire to stand out on her own and Vanya’s yearning to write a play; and fear of aging—Masha’s desire to hold on to youth by dating a much younger man, Spike (Billy Magnussen). The entire cast was amazing, especially David Hyde Pierce for his character’s long monologue about the increasing disconnect between his generation and Spike’s, as well as Billy Magnussen for his portrayal of the often dimwitted and opportunistic Spike. If you only see one play this year, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is the one to see.
