A.R. Gurney's Smart & Sassy SYLVIA Opens Tonight At Newport Playhouse

A.R. Gurney's Smart & Sassy SYLVIA Opens Tonight At Newport PlayhouseNewport Playhouse and Cabaret Restaurant newest production, A.R. Gurney's comedic "man-meets-dog" Sylvia opens tonight, Friday, October 12, 2018. The smart, silly and sometimes salty Off-Broadway hit play is about the chaos that ensues when a dog named Sylvia is adopted into the home of married urbanites Greg and Kate. Directed by Michael Johnson, Sylvia runs through Sunday, November 18 at Newport Playhouse and Cabaret Restaurant, 102 Connell Highway, Newport, RI, with performances Friday and Saturday evenings, plus the very popular weekday and Sunday matinees.

A.R. Gurney's Off-Broadway hit is a smart, silly, sophisticated, and sometimes salty romantic comedy. Tickets for Sylvia are on sale now and start at $49.95 per person, which includes a dinner buffet, full-length play, and post-show cocktail cabaret. Theater-only admission is $25. Purchase online at www.newportplayhouse.com or by calling (401) 848-7529 (PLAY).

Called "Howlingly funny!" by BackStage, the play tells the tale of Greg and Kate (Rick Bagley and Pamela Gill) who have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park, named "Sylvia." Played by Olivia M. Sahlin, street-smart mutt Sylvia soon takes Greg's attention away from his wife, much to Kate's dismay. Director Michael Johnson also rounds out the four-person cast playing not one, but three supporting roles, Tom, Phyllis and Leslie.
