Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Deliriously funny! Comic acting raised to the level of high art. . . . The theater erupts in booming gusts of laughter that practically shake the seats!”—The New York Times

“Hugely entertaining . . . few contemporary playwrights have proven as deft as Durang as mining both the absurdity and the dangers of human folly. . . . in its own deliciously madcap way, the new work offers some keen insights into the challenges and agonies of 21st-century life.”—USA Today

“We get too few comedies on Broadway, much less ones with the breezy wit and satirical bite of this one.”—Time Out

“A sublime state of hilarity!”—New York Magazine

“A wild, winning ride! Hugely entertaining!”—USA Today

“Entirely, indisputably, oh-no-he-didn’t Durang.”—Entertainment Weekly

“The funniest show in town!”—Bloomberg

“Riotous! The kind of full-on comedy that’s rare on Broadway. It makes you laugh out loud, and repeatedly at that!”—New York Post

“Nothing short of hilarious! It leaves the audience in tears of laughter!”—The Huffington Post

“Hilarious with an inspired cast!”—Variety

“One of the funniest comedies Broadway has seen in seasons.”—Newsday

    Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

    I did not think it possible. Christopher Durang takes on Chekov and writes a play filled with warmth and dare I say --- Optimism? A fine play.
