SYLVIA, Broadway’s most captivating canine, is excited to celebrate NATIONAL DOG WEEK with a box office giveaway that both dogs and their human companions can enjoy. Free SYLVIA goodies -- including a SYLVIA t-shirt, a pop-up drinking bowl, and a product from petsmile -- will be distributed at the box office of the Cort Theatre (138 W. 48th Street) from Monday, September 21 through Saturday, September 26 (10:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. daily) with the purchase of a full-price ticket (Orchestra and Mezzanine seats only).
SYLVIA, a play by two-time Pulitzer Prize-nominee A.R. Gurney (The Dining Room, Love Letters) and directed by Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof) begins a limited Broadway engagement on Friday, October 2, 2015. Opening night is set for Tuesday, October 27, 2015.
Funny and heartwarming, SYLVIA is about what happens when a smart, sassy, captivating canine befriends a New Yorker in Central Park and changes his life - and his wife’s life - forever. This wonderful look into the complexities of love and commitment asks what it truly means to be devoted to your partner…and how do you choose between the love of your life and man’s best friend?
