Bermuda Avenue Triangle
Running January 7 to February 26, 2017
This outrageous comedy by the authors of Lovers and Other Strangers and other uproarious hits starred Nanette Fabray and the authors on Broadway. It concerns the adventures of a Jewish widow and an Irish widow whose successful daughters move them to Las Vegas, where they share a retirement village condo. On an excursion, they are saved from a mugger by a charming if not quite sober gambler who is short on cash. They allow him to curl up on the living room floor and he manages to sweet talk his way into both ladies’ beds. Each situation is rife with the outrageous, excessive comedy that endears these playwrights to audiences everywhere.
“Bologna and Taylor possess a lively and friendly sense of the ridiculous and they have a natty way with sight gags.” – N.Y. Post.

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public- school English teacher, 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 mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog.
A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog. “Dramatic literature is stuffed with memo- rable love scenes, but none is as immediately de- licious and dizzy as the one that begins the re- deeming affair in A.R. Gurney’s new comedy, SYLVIA…” -NY Times. “I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen…” -NY Daily News. “Gurney’s mad comedy is the most endearing good time to trot down the pike in many a moon. Howlingly funny…” -BackStage.
