PLAYBILL THEATRE WEEK IN REVIEW, March 9-15: Critics Respond to the New Plays by Christopher Durang, Annie Baker, Craig Lucas
15 Mar 2013 --
Christopher Durang enjoyed his first Broadway production in 17 years this week. (In the spirit of charity, we won't count the text he contributed to the 2010 Dame Edna outing All About Me.) It was Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which had a critically embraced Off-Broadway run earlier this season. His previous Broadway bout was the famous flop Sex and Longing in 1996. The two shows have a thing or two in common. They were both produced by Lincoln Center Theater and both starred Durang's old college pal Sigourney Weaver.
