News About SYLVIA by A.R. Gurney at Theater UnCorked

BWW Review: SYLVIA: The Lady Is A Tramp
April 20, 2019

Theater UnCorked drains the bottle of its inaugural season this weekend with a fully-staged production of SYLVIA, prolific playwright A.R. Gurney's homage to man's best friend. Hilarious and heartwarming in equal measure, the play is a welcome respite from the spate of heftier, more serious dramatic works meant to resonate with our times and make us think. The only thing that Gurney wants us to think about is the inescapable joy shared between a man and his dog, and how their connection changes three lives and one marriage for the better. Supported by strong performances by Allan Mayo, Kimberly McClure, and David Anderson, Theater UnCorked's Artistic Director Shana Dirik is the top dog. (more...)

BWW Review: Theater Uncorked Flies High With ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
October 16, 2018

Theater Uncorked returned to the First Church Cambridge this past weekend for two performances of a staged reading of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, a 1963 play by Dale Wasserman, based on the novel of the same name by Ken Kesey. Lest the inmates run the asylum, the strong directorial hand of Bobbi Steinbach kept the chaos under control, presumably in a kinder, gentler way than Nurse Ratched's managerial style. Her staging made it feel like so much more than a reading, especially in the group scenes, where the bonding and banter among the patients rang true. There was nary a weak link in the ensemble, and the leading players were so strong in their characterizations that my mind drew a blank when trying to imagine anyone else as Ratched (Kerry A. Dowling), Randle P. McMurphy (Gene Dante), or Chief Bromden (Pedro Figueroa). (more...)

SYLVIAby A.R. Gurney Presented by Theater UnCorked South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA 4/18/19 - 4/21/19Greg, a middle-aged, empty-nester who is tired of his job in finance, is looking for meaning in his life. Sylvia, an exuberant and beautiful stray in Central Park, is looking for a new home. When they meet, it is love at first sight. Things begin to get a little RUFF for Greg, however, as his wife Kate is less than thrilled by the street-smart canine who jumps, slobbers, sits on her couch, and takes all of Gregs attention. Sylvia promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect. Gurneys Sylvia is a smart, sophisticated comedy about relationships and growing older. Whether you own a dog or just like to laugh, you will simply love Sylvia!Run time: 1 hour, 45 minutes, with one intermission.TICKETS:

Ages: 12 and older
