"the fine Jobsite production, directed perfectly by Paul Potenza, offers a top cast and impeccable design. It’s certainly the funniest show of the year so far." - Creative Loafing Tampa

"[the audience] appeared to enjoy the play thoroughly from beginning to end ... much credit goes to Roz Potenza as Sonia and Elizabeth Fendrick as Masha for playing such over-the-top characters in ways that are not over the top ... Brian Shea as Vanya delivers an impassioned and brilliant 14-minute monologue lamenting the passage of older ways ... an amazing piece of theater" - Tampa Bay Times

"Characters with remorse and regret have rarely been as funny ... a darkly funny adventure ... an entertaining production and a fun evening" - The Tampa Tribune

This production is dedicated to the memory of Rachel Anne Lisi.

A send-up of Chekov’s plays so hilarious on its own merit that it doesn’t even matter if you think Chekov is just the name of that Russian guy on Star Trek!

Middle-aged siblings Vanya (Brian Shea) and Sonia (Roz Potenza) share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha (Elizabeth Fendrick), swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike (Jamie Jones).

Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra (Jonelle Marie Meyer), who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina (Emily Belvo), whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. Old resentments flare up, and the family crisis peaks just in time for the big party.

“Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art … deliriously funny.” – The New York Times

“…riotous … the show’s a ton of fun even if you can’t tell your Seagull from your Uncle Vanya… This is the kind of full-on comedy that’s sadly rare on Broadway.” – New York Post

Directed by Paul J. Potenza with designs by Brian Smallheer (set), Ryan Finzelber (lights), Brittany Reuther (costumes), and David Jenkins (sound), with stage management by Matthew Paul.
