Video highlights: 'Vanya' cast talks Durang at Page to Stage

Page to Stage is a series of free, monthly lunch conversations between host John Moore and members of DCPA Theatre Company productions at the East Colfax Tattered Cover.

Here, actors Sam Gregory, Kathleen McCall and Lesley Shires of the hit production of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” talk all things Durang and Disney with Moore, the DCPA’s Senior Arts Journalist and former theatre critic at The Denver Post.

This comic Chekhovian mash-up, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for best play and now the most popular play in America, erupts into chaos when two adult siblings receive a surprise visit from their Hollywood star sister and her hilariously mismatched boy-toy, Spike. It’s the first time in the DCPA’s 36-year history that the Theatre Company is staging a play by the absurdist comedy master Christopher Durang.

Page to Stage is part of the DCPA’s CONNECT program, a series of community events designed to enrich your theatre experience and spark a conversation. It’s free — and so is the parking! (Please note that Page to Stage has moved to its new home at the East Colfax Tattered Cover location).

Join us at noon on Jan. 27 for the next Page to Stage lunchtime conversation at 2526 E. Colfax Ave. Video by John Moore and David Lenk. Run time: 4 minutes. And, hey: Check out our new media outlet covering Colorado theatre at MyDenverCenter.Org
