        Man’s best friend is now New York’s newest and brightest comedy hit: Sylvia, a Broadway play about loyal dogs, empty nesters, and of course, true love. Funny and heartwarming, Sylvia is about what happens when a smart, sassy, captivating canine befriends a New Yorker in Central Park and changes his life—and his wife’s life forever. This wonderful look into the complexities of love and commitment asks what it truly means to be devoted to your partner ... and how do you choose between the love of your life and man’s best friend.

        From Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Glengarry Glen Ross) and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee A. R. Gurney (The Dining Room, Love Letters), Sylvia features a cast of top-pedigree, award-winning performers: Tony winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers, How To Succeed...), Tony winner Julie White (The Little Dog Laughed), Drama Desk Award winner Robert Sella (Stuff Happens), and fresh from her 2015 Tony-winning performance in You Can’t Take It With You, Annaleigh Ashford as Broadway's friskiest new heroine.
