Poodle-mix Sylvia thinks her new master is a god, which is the way most owners would like it. But that doesn't stop the middle-aged, middle-class couple who take in the stray from coming apart at the seams when Sylvia romps into their lives. This is the basic story line of A.R. Gurney's 1995 Sylvia. Along with a slew of other rave reviews, The New York Times called the play "critic proof" when it opened with Sarah Jessica Parker playing the charmingly naughty lead character. You can decide for yourself when you see Sylvia at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sunday, September 26, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 30. Through October 2. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury.
