Don’t miss Christine Ebersole in ‘Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike’

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Last weekend I was attending the opening night of the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play, Christopher Durang's comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, here in Los Angeles at the Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum.
