I thought the production was absolutely delightful. I particularly liked Mary Elizabeth Scallen's comic performance as Kate, the bright, attractive wife who has to compete with a stray dog for her husband's affection.
Paul Felder was a hoot playing his trio of supporting roles. I especially enjoyed Leslie, the therapist who allowed his patients to determine his/her gender for themselves.

A love triangle between a man, his wife — and his dog! New York power couple Greg and Kate move from the suburbs to the city expecting to enjoy their newly empty nest. When Greg brings Sylvia, an adorable stray mutt, back to their home, Kate finds herself ignored – and is surprised with Greg’s other changes. Can a longtime spouse compete with the undeniable appeal of unconditional love? “Delicious and dizzy,” says the New York Times. Featuring an all-star cast: Greg Wood, Mary Beth Scallen, Jessica Bedford and Paul Felder.
