Video montage: Scenes from 'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike'

Absurdist master Christopher Durang blends melancholy with mayhem in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which The New York Times declares a “deliriously funny” black comedy.

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, this Chekhovian mash-up erupts into chaos when Vanya and Sonia receive a surprise visit from their Hollywood star sister, Masha, and her boy-toy Spike. Here are scenes from the DCPA Theatre Company production opening Oct. 17 and running through Nov 16, 2014 in the Ricketson Theatre. Featuring Kathleen McCall, Sam Gregory, Amelia White, Eddie Lopez, Lesley Shires and Socorro Santiago. Directed by Jenn Thompson. Video by David Lenk. 303-893-4100 or
