Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Cassandra, Sonia and Vanya’s loyal maid, who can see into the future and practice voodoo.
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike marks the Broadway debut for Grant. She appeared off-Broadway in The Merchant of Venice and The Philanderer.
Other Honors for this Role:

This is Grant’s first Tony nomination.
When Grant auditioned for her high school arts programs, she performed a two-person scene from A Raisin in the Sun as a solo piece; and when Mama slapped Beneatha for not believing in God, Grant slapped herself.
“Every year, there is something new that I’m experiencing, that I’m experimenting with, because I don’t want to be afraid in my life. I want to really live.” —Grant in an interview with Broadway.com, 3/13
