BWW Review: SYLVIA Opens Up a Dog's Mind to Reveal What Makes a Truly Loving CompanionBWW Review: SYLVIA Opens Up a Dog's Mind to Reveal What Makes a Truly Loving Companion
by Shari Barrett - Nov 5, 2016

In the 1995 comedy SYLVIA by A.R. Gurney, married couple Greg (Steve Howard revisiting the role he played with Tanna in 2011) and Kate (appropriately named Beege Barkette) are empty-nesters in the big city.
