Theater enthusiasts will soon be able to view past Lincoln Center Theater shows from the comfort of home! As part of the LCT Spotlight Series of digital initiatives, Private Reels: From the LCT Archives will offer streamed recordings of LCT productions in their entirety, including Christopher Durang’s Tony-winning play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves and more.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which played the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center prior to its Broadway transfer, will stream for free beginning on March 18. The show garnered Tony nominations for director Nicholas Martin as well as performers David Hyde Pierce, Kristine Nielsen, Billy Magnussen and Shalita Grant. In the comedy, Durang transports characters and themes from Chekhov’s work to present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania where siblings receive a visit from their sister and her 20-something boy toy Spike.

Private Reels: From the LCT Archives is made possible in partnership with Actors’ Equity Association, Stage Directors & Choreographers Society, and United Scenic Artists, Local USA 829, IATSE.
