Sigourney Weaver, David Hyde Pierce are Broadway-bound

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce will reprise their onstage sibling rivalry when they take Christopher Durang's "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" to Broadway.

Producers said Tuesday that the play, which takes characters and themes from Chekhov and sets them in present-day Pennsylvania, will make the leap from Lincoln Center's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater to Broadway's Golden Theatre for 17 weeks starting March 5.
