SYLVIA Opens Tonight at the 2nd Story Theatre

George Bernard Shaw once said, "Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." At 2nd Story change is constant and audiences have learned to expect and embrace Artistic Director Ed Shea's programming adjustments. This season, for a variety of practical reasons, Shea has decided to upend the season finales in both the UpStage and DownStage theaters.

Time Stands Still (DownStage) and Psycho Beach Party (UpStage) are out!

Sylvia (DownStage) and Becky's New Car (UpStage) are in!

SYLVIA by A.R. Gurney, Jr.

Greg, whose career as a financial trader is winding down, brings home a dog he found in the park bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her tag. What follows is a modern romantic comedy about midlife, marriage, and a dog.
