The Red Papaya is a great place to eat before the show. Right around the corner , reasonably-priced, good service and good food selection.

Cute. Very original. The dog was a bit too talkative. I think that well placed gestures and looks (from the dog) could have been more effective.
The guy that had three roles in the play was excellent.
Overall, a good show.

Great play! The reviewer from the Stranger was way off base as usual. Go see this play.

Description

_Sylvia _

by A.R. Gurney

directed by R. Hamilton Wright

Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after twenty-two years in the suburbs. As Kate tells Greg: “The dog phase of my life is definitely over.” But life has a way of giving you what you think you don’t want. Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.

In the years leading up to Seattle Rep’s 50th Anniversary, the theatre will be revisiting favorites. This heart-warming comedy is often requested, “Bring it back, please!”
