Stephen Sorokoff – My View: Wow! Was She A Dog – Annaleigh Ashford – Sylvia

Stephen Sorokoff – My View: Wow! Was She A Dog – Annaleigh Ashford – Sylvia

Sylvia

Our family never had a dog, but if I ever met a stray animal like Sylvia in Central Park I would have taken her home like Matthew Broderick did in this very funny play. That’s where my dog story would be different. I couldn’t fall in love with a dog, and certainly it would not become more important to me than my wife. Annaleigh Ashford is hysterically brilliant both verbally and physically playing the part of the dog Sylvia. Gregg (Matthew Brodwick) her husband and new dog owner goes from infatuation, to puppy love, to real love for Sylvia. His wife Kate (Julie White) has to suffer the humiliation of taking a back seat (couch) to Sylvia at every turn. Robert Sella who plays three parts (Tom/Phyllis/Leslie kept me rolling (not over like Sylvia) in the aisle with laughter. The premise of a dog becoming it’s owner’s girlfriend would seem  odd but A.R. Gurney’s play is so funny and the acting so superb you should definitely walk to see this dog.

The food at the opening night after party was certainly not dog food. The Bryant Park Grill had a phenomenal array of cuisine enjoyed by the celebrity crowd.  Check out the photos
