Matthew Broderick stars in the Broadway revival about a couple whose lives are changed when the husband brings home a dog he finds in Central Park. More…
'Sylvia' is about what happens when a smart, sassy canine befriends a New Yorker in Central Park and changes his and his wife’s life forever. The comedy takes a look into the complexities of love and commitment and asks what it truly means to be devoted to your partner…and how you choose between the love of your life and man’s best friend. Starring two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick and Tony-winner Annaleigh Ashford.
See it if you love dogs; you want to feel like you're watching a good sitcom; you fantasize about being a rich New Yorker w/rich New Yorker problems.
Don't see it if you want a 90-minute show (if only); you want deep social commentary or political undercurrent; you crave diverse casting.
See it if you love dogs, for one. It's a fun show, well acted and staged, but if you love dogs you will adore this show.
Don't see it if you don't love animals. It's a fun, insightful show, but if you're not an animal lover it'll be wasted on you.
See it if for Annaleigh Ashford. She is AMAZING. Or if you want to see "Ferris" on stage.
Don't see it if you're looking for a good play - theres no substance. Its just not good.
See it if you have ever owned a dog. Enjoy light-hearted and heart-warming comedies with great performances.
Don't see it if you prefer more resonant and profound theater.
See it if I actually saw the original with Sarah a Jessica Parker as Sylvia. I loved it and loved her .
Don't see it if Mathew Broderick is in it...he hurts my teeth.
See it if Annaleigh Ashford. Robert Sella. You can let the jokes that land carry you through all the ones that don't.
Don't see it if This play really didn't deserve a revival. The material is dated and even the "timeless" humor feels uninspired and saved by the actors.
See it if Happiness is a warm puppy or, as Stoppard wrote, all you need from a play is, "Love and a bit with a dog." Ashford is adorably adoptable.
Don't see it if Sketch material protracted to 2 hours has you scratching the door to get out and Broderick's delivery sounds like Shirley Temple in drag.
See it if You enjoy Annaleigh Ashford (she is always phenomenal) and enjoy a light, funny show.
Don't see it if You need depth to a plot, are bothered by minor sexism, and want more chemistry between the leads.
See it if for a shoo-in performance for best actress, appreciate a clever and mostly successful conceit, for scenes w Greg and Sylvia (and some Kate)
Don't see it if Want to avoid whiplash btw over-the-top and benignly inert performances, want a coherent directive/narrative style, hate Gurney saccharine
See it if you want a breezy stroll, with a somewhat unhinged furry companion, through the anxiety of life in transition for empty nest Manhattanites.
Don't see it if you want to (cerebrally) chew on your plays like a dog with a bone.
See it if You love dogs, don't mind Matthew Broderick's one-note, uninvolved acting style, and can get a major discount.
Don't see it if unless you LOVE Matthew Broderick & would also leave your spouse for a dog. He reads lines but doesn't add any emotion or humor. He bored me
See it if You want to see the stars perform and like crude humor
Don't see it if You need a story rather than a concept. The only humor present was all shock-value, nothing actually funny
See it if You love dogs and wonder what they are thinking. This show is very clever and very funny. Matthew anna and the rest of the cast were great!
Don't see it if Younger than 15, a lot of cursing
See it if -you like light, silly comedy -you're a fan of Matthew Broderick, Annaleigh Ashford, Julie White, or Robert Sella. - you love dogs
Don't see it if - you're with children (too much talk of F***ing) -you're looking for a serious play with substance
See it if Very cute if you are a dog lover. Should still be off Broadway but if you want a fun evening, love your dog and get discounted tickets, go.
Don't see it if If you don't particularly like dogs and want a drama.
See it if You like a quirky show with engaging characters. The actress was perky and cute.
Don't see it if You are not interested in a story centered around a dog
