NEW YORK (AP) - A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” will bound onto Broadway this fall starring Julie White, Robert Sella and Annaleigh Ashford.

In this 1995 comic howler, Gurney wrote about a dog who seduces the attentions and affection of hard working, middle class husband. The dog will be played by Ashford, Tony-nominated for “Kinky Boots” and “You Can’t Take It With You.”

White is currently starring in “Airline Highway” and her credits include “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” and “The Little Dog Laughed.” Sella was last on Broadway in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”

The director is Daniel Sullivan. David Rockwell will build the sets.

“Sylvia” was first produced off-Broadway with Sarah Jessica Parker in the doggie role. The producers of the revival are Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Daryl Roth.
