The story of a dog who comes between married New York couple Greg and Kate, Sylvia is a warm and witty comedy from A. R. Gurney. 2015 Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford (You Can't Take It With You) stars as the titular character, an anthropomorphised mutt whose unquestioning adoration of her master results in marital strife. Fresh off his stint on Broadway comedy It's Only A Play, two time Tony recipient Matthew Broderick co-stars as Greg.

February 25-October 9, 2016

Written by comedian Steve Martin and singer-songwriter Edie Brickell, Bright Star is a winsome bluegrass musical, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
