Two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick has completed the cast of the upcoming Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia, starring Julie White, Robert Sella, and Annaleigh Ashford as the titular dog.
Broderick will play a New Yorker who brings home a stray dog (newly-minted Tony winner Ashford) to his discerning wife (White), who immediately takes a dislike to the new family member and finds herself at odds with the other woman in her husband’s life.
Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the play is set to begin previews on Oct. 2 at the Cort Theatre in anticipation of an Oct. 27 opening.
Broderick last appeared on Broadway in last season’s celebrity-packed production of It’s Only a Play; his previous credits include Tony-winning turns in Brighton Beach Memoirs and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, as well as the original casts of The Producers and Nice Work If You Can Get It.
