St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and you’re in luck. Playhouse on the Square is showcasing two Tony Award-winning Anton Chekhov productions in repertory packed with talented cast (and loads of laughs).
First up, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Wasting away in their family’s farmhouse, Vanya and Sonia get more than they bargained for when their egocentric sister, Masha, flits into town. It doesn’t help her cause when Masha’s beefcake flavor of the month accompanies her on her weekend trip, and things certainly stay interesting. Can you say sibling rivalry? Tamara Scott returns to the Playhouse stage as Masha (regulars might recognize her from her roles as Viola in Twelfth Night and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show).

Next up, The Seagull features Scott as famed actress Irina Arkadina. No longer the young starlet she once was, her attentions singularly focus on her young lover — despite his many flaws — which leaves little room noticing her own son, much less anything else. Jealousy, creativity, love, and hate all squeezed under one roof; something’s about to blow.
