Quotes & Highlights

Watch video of a previous take on Sylvia at the Edgemar Center for the Arts.
“Tanna Frederick shines in ‘Sylvia.’ Tanna totally embraces this role and has such ‘doggone’ fun in bringing Sylvia to life. It is infectious.” —
“Tanna Frederick is truly brilliant as Sylvia. She embodies the fun-loving, childlike spirit of the dog.” —Huffington Post
“A guy in both midlife crisis and a stale marriage is an old story, but throw in a rambunctious adopted dog—-played by an insouciant and lovely actress—-and you have a play that is both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny.” —Whole Life Times
“More fun than a barrel of puppies. Frederick is nothing short of terrific.” —
“Tanna Frederick is a delight…. Dog lovers everywhere (and that must be half of L.A.) will love this play.” —The Gregory Mantell Show
