We’re halfway through Tech rehearsals now, and we’re on schedule to open Chris Durang’s wonderful Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike this Friday evening at Asolo Rep. Even as we add Ann Wrightson’s elegant lighting, Jennifer Caprio’s witty costumes, and Matt Parker’s playful sound design to Ray Klausen’s beautiful set (which already feels like home), we’re digging deeper into the play and its quirky and all-too-human characters. New discoveries continue for all of us as we play in our new space. We have preview performances on Wednesday and Thursday night, leading up to Friday’s opening.
Here’s an interview with me, Anne-Marie Cusson (Masha), and our director Peter Amster, from the Sarasota Herald Tribune. Enjoy! If you’re in the area–come see the show; it’s funny and zany, with a big heart underneath. We will run in rep through April 13th.
