After a very successful run of Rosemary Frisino Toohey’s Gladys in Wonderland, the cast of players that are part of our unique theatrical community is busy rehearsing for the award-winning stage comedy by A. R. Gurney, Sylvia, directed by Lynne Dellinger.
The title refers to a zesty stray dog that manages to persuade Greg, a middle-aged New York man to adopt her and bring her home to the empty-nest home he shares with his wife, Kate. In doing so, Sylvia lands smack in the middle of their relationship, challenging their way of life in all sorts of unexpected ways.
Sylvia opened Off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club on May 2, 1995, where it ran for 167 performances. Directed by John Tillinger, the cast included Sarah Jessica Parker as Sylvia, Blythe Danner, and Charles Kimbrough. The production received Drama Desk Award nominations for Outstanding Play, Outstanding Actress in a Play (Parker), and Outstanding Costume Design (Jane Greenwood). The play was recently Broadway revival hit, with Parker’s husband, Matthew Broderick as Greg.
“Dramatic literature is stuffed with memorable love scenes, but none is as immediately delicious and dizzy as the one that begins the redeeming affair in A.R. Gurney’s new comedy, Sylvia…”The New York Times
