Dear Masha, I just read that my government is airlifting 16 million pre-packaged army-surplus meals to the former Soviet Union, and I started thinking about a meal you fed us last summer, and I felt like apologizing.It was a warm July afternoon at the little cottage in Iksha where you were staying for the summer. We caught the electrichka from Savelevsky station, crowded as always on Saturday with Muscovites fleeing the city, wearing canvas rucksacks and bending over the day's issue of Nezavisimaya Gazeta.

Nothing like a hefty bout of Chekhovian depression to lift the spirits. You can't help but feel better after spending time with "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike," the 2013 Tony Award-winning comedy by Christopher Durang currently receiving a snappy Baltimore premiere at Center Stage. Filled with Chekhov references, this tale of three siblings and a stud might try a little too hard and might apply some of its humor with the subtlety of a hammer and sickle. But Durang's clever concoction - a sort of extended, sometimes heady sitcom - entertains consistently.

Editor's note: An old witch forces a girl on a dangerous mission to recover a stolen egg. On the edge of a deep, dark forest there once lived a young girl called Masha. One day at the market Masha saw a tiny box of paints for sale and, because her mother had sold all the eggs she had brought, she bought the paintbox for Masha. Masha knew the forest around her home well, but one day she ventured farther than usual and found herself deep in the heart of the forest where the old trees grew and the air was dark and still.

The Baltimore School for the Arts can boast its first nomination for a Tony Award -- thanks to graduate Shalita Grant, whose debut Broadway bow has won her a nod for Best Featured Actress in a Play. "Graduates have been nominated for Grammys and Emmy Awards in the past, but this is our first Tony," says Donald Hicken, chairman of the school's theater department. "Shalita is over the moon. She's an amazingly gifted actor and this was clear from her audition for entrance as a 9 th grader at BSA. One of our trustees kind of begged me to audition her. Ordinarily, I wouldn't see her because it was outside our regular audition week.

Ja'Leesa D. Blunt of St. James St. John School correctly informed us that Masha was tempted to keep the egg of Fire for herself in "Masha and the Firebird." Reading "The Saturday Kid," Steven B. Risso, Jr. of St. Ursula's School paid attention to what was playing on the newsreel at Loew's Paradise: "Leo playing the violin, Leo shaking hands with the mayor and a close up of them both."

It takes a real woman to play The Woman in Black. As director Irene Lewis set out to cast the formidable role of Masha in Center Stage's production of Chekhov's The Three Sisters, she knew that the authenticity the role requires would be hard to find. "Chekhov is one of the greatest writers of the 20th century," she says. "His work is highly dense - and Masha was written for Chekhov's wife, so it's a revered role." Masha, the middle of the play's three sisters, is one of the most coveted parts in all of theater.

FREDERICK -- You could say that Diana and Mike Bartel became instant parents. They didn't do it the nine-month way. Nor did they go through a long, drawn-out adoption process. Six weeks after the Bartels saw pictures of Russian sisters, Masha, 4 1/2 , and Sasha, 3 1/2 , the girls came to Frederick to live.Adoption had always intrigued Mrs. Bartel, 35, and Mr. Bartel, 34, who might someday have a biological child of their own. In late October, the couple went to a public meeting on adoption in Rockville, Montgomery County.
