When it's a play by Edward Albee, the master of American absurdist theater with his wry dialogue and unsympathetic depictions of modern life, it's bound to push boundaries and be unexpected. Albee himself in an interview said about the 2002 Tony Award winner for Best Play The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? "Imagine what you can't imagine"; and the play delivers a wickedly funny and searing exploration of tolerance and the chaotic fragility of human relationships. Upfront, the premise of The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? is a man in love with a goat. Yet, Albee goes further. Amid the clever and hilarious dialogue, he examines the confounding and often irrational nature of love and the anguish of loneliness amidst what appears to be a happy world. The title refers to the song "Who is Sylvia" Proteus sings to woo his intended in Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? will woo audiences in surprising ways in an unforgettable theatrical experience.
