Last Friday I went to the Goodman Theater to watch "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike", by Christopher Durang, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Good theme, funny script, and full of clever references. Now I'm curious about his other plays, especially "The Idiots Karamazov" and "Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You".
