Upcoming events

Aug. 11, 2016 - Aug. 28, 2016
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

There’s no drama like family drama, and there’s no family quite like the one in VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE, August 11 – 28, 2016. The Tony-winning comedy by Christopher Durang will offer a madcap opening to Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s 2016-2017 season. The play opens with Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia living out their middle age in the old family farmhouse after years of caring for their ailing, Chekhov-loving parents. But their quietly tedious existence changes dramatically once their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her twenty-something boy toy Spike for a weekend of wild costume parties, voodoo dolls and family feuds. Performances run Wednesdays through Sundays from Aug. 11 to 28 at the Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway. Tickets are available Monday through Saturday from noon-6:00 p.m. at the Broadway Theatre Center Box Office, 158 N. Broadway, or by phone at (414) 291-7800. Tickets can be purchased online 24 hours a day at milwaukeechambertheatre.com.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

by Christopher Durang Directed by JC Clementz Vanya and his adopted sister, Sonia, are living out their middle age in an old farmhouse in Bucks County, PA, after years of caring for their ailing, Chekhov-loving parents. But their quietly tedious existence changes dramatically once their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike, for a weekend of wild costume parties, voodoo dolls and family feuds. In its own deliciously madcap way, Durang's Tony Award-winning play not only offers endlessly inventive comic twists, but some keen insights into the absurdities, challenges and agonies of twenty-first-century life as well. [Contains mature language]
