Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career is winding down, while Kate's 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" on her name tag. A street-smart (and outspoken) mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention as she competes with Kate for Greg’s love and attention. Notably portrayed on Broadway by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Annaleigh Ashford, Sylvia is the sassy, sweet, and adorable star of this tail-wagging comedy.
