In a new, innovative, adaptation by Michael Puzzo, commissioned by Hudson Theatre Works, Chekov's masterpiece is transported to a small New Jersey town a few years after Hurricane Sandy. 

In an over-crowded Bed and Breakfast, a documentary film maker and his second wife, and the daughter and brother-in- law from his first marriage, navigate mid-life crises and unrequited love. Delusion and despair compete with humor and hope in Chekov's story about what is and what might have been.

The cast includes Kevin Cristaldi as Vanya; Vincent Sagona as Dr. Mike,  Meredyth Kenny as Helena, Mike Folie as Alexander, Gregory Erbach as Pocky, Bess Miller as Sonia, Joanne Hoersch as Mrs. Voynitski, Beatriz Esteban-Messina, Nanita,

The show is sponsored by Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner and the city council, UBS, The Campbell Foundation, Actors Equity and Walmart.
