Sylvia, For Dog Lovers

    

 Tony, Victoria, me, and Eliot at the bar in the CitizensM Hotel, Times Square  

I met Broadway producer Victoria Lang when she was working in the TV business on the Regis & Kathy Lee show. This was several decades ago. I was a young publicist and she was a young TV producer.  Fast forward to today. Victoria is a well known producer on the Great White Way who keeps bringing great properties to the stage.

Tonight we got to see her show, “Sylvia,” at the Cort Theatre. My friends Ruth and Howard saw the play a few weeks ago and really liked it. Eliot and I laughed so much because it was so clever and thought-provoking that I would see it again and again.

If you ever had a dog, or you love animals, then you must see this play. It speaks right to you. We have had three dogs over the span of 30 years and could relate to the emotions on the stage in a big way. It’s about a businessman, played by Matthew Broderick, and his dog Sylvia, played brilliantly by Annaleigh Ashford. The play is extremely clever in the way it’s presented.

Some of  Victoria’s productions include:   Found, Silence! Shout, Matt & Ben, Johnny Guitar, Listen to My Heart, and Bat Boy. 
Congratulations Victoria.
