What if you can talk back to your pet?
Who really is man's best friend, his dog or his wife?
Watch what happens when you unleash the laughter and love in this hilarous side splitting comedy by A.R. Gurney.
It’s a Marriage vs. Dog!
Greg (played by Michael Gilbride) and Kate (played by Barbara Horan) have moved to Manhattan. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate's career, as a public school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" (portrayed by Ashley Ayala) on her name tag. A streetsmart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy after a series of hilarious and touching complications. The cast also includes Connecticut Cabaret Theatre favorites Dave Wall and Carleigh Schultz.
Sylvia runs every Friday and Saturday, only, at 8:00pm August 23rd thru September 28th, 2019. (No August 30th and 31st, 2019). Doors open at 7:15pm. Tickets are now on sale.

"Connecticut Cabaret Theatre's first show of its 22nd year reflects the consistency of first rate shows that audiences have come to expect at the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre ... The positive reactions of this packed house, throughout the entire production, show that my extreme enjoyment of this show is shared throughout the audience.." - Sean Fallon (Broadway World)
From the Desk of Jim R, Take 2
"Ashley Ayala delivers the comic performance of the season ... The acting is believable, hysterical and confident. Kris McMurray's direction is playful, strong and sturdy. And the resulting production proves once again how creative and intelligent a playwright A.R. Gurney was."
