Billy Magnussen Debuts as Sigourney Weaver’s Boy Toy in 'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike'

Publish date:

Have you missed seeing Billy Magnussen (pictured above with co-star David Hyde Pierce) and his ripped body since As the World Turns ended its run? If so, now is your chance to see him strip to his skivvies once again during the run of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre.

Magnussen plays Masha’s (Sigourney Weaver) boy toy Spike, who has a propensity for abandoning most of his clothes, in the play that opened November 12.

Theater Mania weighed in on Magnussen’s role,

Life gets temporarily upended when Masha unexpectedly shows up one day – with decades-younger boy-toy Spike in tow (the extraordinarily fit and often semi-dressed Billy Magnussen). She has returned ostensibly to attend a neighbor's costume ball, but also to deliver the shocking news that she has decided to sell the family homestead in order to cut down on her own expenses.

In addition to Magnussen, Weaver and Hyde Pierce, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike stars Kristine Nielsen, Shalita Grant and Genevieve Angelson.  Visit Tele Charge for ticket times and prices. See more photos from Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike's opening night after the jump!
