PRODUCERS have announced that the London premiere of Christopher Durang’s Tony Award-winning Best Play comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, due to start previews at Charing Cross Theatre on Saturday, March 21, 2020, will not now go ahead as planned.

It wil be rescheduled later in the year.

Producer Steven M. Levy said: “We have been closely monitoring the developing situation surrounding Coroniovirus (COVID-19). The safety of our cast, staff and our patrons is paramount and so we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the production to later in the year.

“Obviously events are fast moving and changing day by day but when the crisis is passed we will announce a new opening date. Patrons should consult their point of purchase for refunds.”

Christopher Durang’s irresistible comedy is one of the most lauded Broadway plays of recent years. It blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day concerns of celebrity, social networking, planetary upheaval and the troubling onset of middle age.
