The new Broadway production of A.R. Gurney's 1995 classic Sylvia is looking for a good dog. Literally.

Daniel Sullivan and company are on the hunt for a puppy who will serve as a model for the show, which features Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford as a talking dog named Sylvia. The selected dog will have his or her face built into the set and be revealed at the end of every performance. Auditions will be held on Monday, August 3 at the Daryl Roth Theatre beginning at 3:00pm. Dog owners wishing to have their dog seen for consideration can email [email protected] with a the name, breed, age, and gender of their dog, along with a photo.

Sylvia will also star Tony winners Matthew Broderick and Julie White as a couple whose marriage is torn apart by Sylvia's arrival in their lives. Robert Sella completes the company. Previews will begin October 2 at the Cort Theatre, with opening night set for October 27.
