What Is Sylvia Like?
When the Manhattan Theatre Club staged the original Off-Broadway production in 1995, New York Times theatre critic called it full of theatrical intelligence, and stated that it was written so well that even though, like a dog, it may make a mess, it will consistently please. Annaleigh Ashford is one of the greatest contemporary comediennes to arrive on Broadway in recent years, and Daniel Sullivan is a vastly experienced director on Broadway. Therefore, this production is sure to be extraordinarily well crafted, and a very funny night at the theatre. The producers, Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, have produced some of the most exciting works of theatre in recent years, including Wolf Hall, The Heidi Chronicles, You Can’t Take It With You, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, and The Realistic Joneses.
Is Sylvia Good for Kids?
Yes, the show is most appropriate for children over the age of 8. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
