VANYA, SONIA, MASHA & SPIKE – Goodman Theater, 170 N Dearborn St., Chicago, IL 60601, (312) 443-3800, goodmantheatre.org
A Chekhov-aced comedy on the problems and potential pleasures of later middle age.
Q-Tips say: It was ok. Two ladies behind us were just laughing all the way through this play.
There were many humorous parts, but not that many funny parts. Mrs. Q enjoyed: the older gentleman, Vanya, who was fairly quiet till the end and then let everything out. Mrs. Q also liked Spike – but had his number right from the start. If tickets are reasonably priced – you might like it.
