Since its opening on Broadway in 1995, SYLVIA has become one of the most popular and frequently produced adult comedies in contemporary theatre.
Greg brings home from the park a stray dog named Sylvia (played on Broadway by Sarah Jessica Parker). Sylvia immediately establishes herself as Greg ’s constant companion. A dog is just what middle-aged Greg seems to need at this stage in his life. His wife Kate, on the other hand, quickly recognizes Sylvia as a rival for Greg’ s affections, time, and a threat to their marriage.
