REVIEWS

A.R. Gurney, the chronicler of sophisticated upper-middle-class angst, author of plays like The Dining Room and Love Letters, is a man gifted with uncommon insight into human motivations and frailties. So when he turns his gift to the analysis of what a dog might really be thinking and really want, it should not be surprising that the results are so rich.” 

----New York Times 
FOUR STARS !!  Broderick....perkier than he’s been lately, gets crucial voltage from Ashford and White, both endlessly inventive comedians. Ashford has the showier role, of course, dashing about in fanciful doggy couture (costumes by Ann Roth) on David Rockwell’s fairy-tale Central Park set and keeping up a sassy stream-of-consciousness. She sniffs strangers’ crotches with impunity; she butt-scoots on the carpet; she swears viciously at cats. What a joy to see Ashford unleashed.­

-----TimeOutNY
A measure of how terrific Sylvia is at its best is the scene where Kate, jealous over Greg’s obsession with his pet, can’t help sharing her frustrations with a friend (one of three characters portrayed by the fourth member of the cast, Robert Sella.)  Julie White is hysterical (in both senses of the word), especially terrific when she is imitating Sylvia’s behavior while describing it.  What’s remarkable is how clear and rigorous the distinction between Julie White’s imitation of Sylvia and Annaleigh Ashford’s impersonation of Sylvia – a testament to the artistry of the director and to these great actresses.
