NEW YORK (AP) — Two-time Tony Award-winner Matthew Broderick has joined the upcoming cast of A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” on Broadway.

Broderick, who recently appeared in “It’s Only a Play,” joins previously announced Tony-winners Julie White and Annaleigh Ashford. Performances begin Oct. 2 at the Cort Theatre.

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

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

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