Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play (and the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama League and the Drama Desk), Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a “sunny new play about gloomy people” (New York Times).

He's forced to return home and remain under the watchful eye of his uncle Claudius, who has seized the throne and married Hamlet's mother, the weak-willed Queen Gertrude. Despondent Hamlet suffers through angst, unrequited love and the upsetting revelation that foul play led to his father's death. You'll see the plot thicken as he plans his revenge. This Synetic Teen Productions performance is the result of a rigorous eight-week training program filled with physically intensive and artistically challenging exercises. The young performers worked with professional directors, fight and movement choreographers and senior Synetic company members to bring you Teen Hamlet.

Hoping to reconnect with his music and shatter the artistic block that’s plagued his career, Stephen Hoffman, an arrogant young American piano prodigy, ventures to Vienna and finds himself in the hands of a passionate master-teacher. It seems impossible that they will ever get along, much less work together. One is European, one American; one old-fashioned, the other modern; one passionate, the other technically precise; and finally, one a seeming anti-Semite, and the other a Jew. Only music—their one common bond—releases the burning emotions of the teacher and melts the frigidity of the student.
