For one more weekend The Antrim Playhouse on Spook Rock Rd. will feature “Sylvia,” a shaggy dog romantic comedy that starred Annaleigh Ashford & Matthew Broderick last year on Broadway, and Sarah Jessica Parker as the original Sylvia in 1995.
Some readers who saw the show sent the following superlatives:
Susan Painter- “We saw Sylvia and it was a delightful experience.”
Diane Mitchell – “Antrim Playhouse performance of Sylvia is fabulous.”
Robin Benado- “Loved the show. Loved the theatre. Great acting. I am looking forward to going back.”
Jeanmarie Byman- “Just saw Sylvia and absolutely love it! all of the actors were wonderful.”
“Sylvia” is the story of what happens when Greg, played by Andrew Lionetti, adopts an abandoned dog with a smart, funny and sassy personality. The dog, Sylvia, played by Dana Duff, changes Greg and his wife Kate’s life forever.
The empty-nesters had just moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in the suburbs. Kate, played by Meg Renton, tells Greg: “The dog phase of my life is definitely over.” But life has a way of giving you what you think you don’t want. As you watch the story unfold you won’t have to wonder what Syvlia is feeling-you will hear and see it firsthand.
Harry Leavey plays the roles of Tom, Leslie and Phyllis.
“Sylvia” was written by A.R. Gurney. The Antrim production is directed by Melinda Pinto and was produced by Peggy Bruner.
