John Ottavino plays Greg in ‘Sylvia’


Sylvia LogoA.R. Gurney’s Sylvia returns to the historic Arcade Theatre on October 24 in a production that The Wall Street Journal called “clever and cute in all the right ways” when the show debuted in 2011.

Sylvia follows empty nesters, Greg and Kate, who find themselves at a crossroads – his career is winding down and hers is ramping up. Now living in a Manhattan apartment, Kate thinks the dog phase of her life is over, but when Greg brings a street-smart labradoodle named Sylvia into their home, all bets are off. Love and laughter are unleashed as Sylvia quickly becomes a bone of contention, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.

In the role of Greg is John Ottavino.
