A R Gurney is a treasure. This play is as good as it gets. If you also happen to be a dog lover, you just may go see it twice.

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

About the Ticket Supplier: Edgemar Center for the Arts

Theatre, dance, music, film, and visual arts come together in one place. Students and seasoned professionals perform side-by-side—their work is a culmination of workshops, rehearsals, and collaboration across disciplines. This is the purpose and the realization of a Center for the Arts. Nestled between a café, salon, retail shops, and an annex of the Museum of Contemporary Art store, Edgemar Center for the Arts is the anchor of the Edgemar complex on Main Street in Santa Monica. The interior courtyard provides a hub for activity and a cross-pollination of artists, businesses, residents and visitors to this beachside destination. The complex is a stop on the tour of local gems designed by architect Frank Gehry.
