Speak, Kate! Speak!

Every story needs conflict. Every great story has one that is complex. Amanda Baird personifies that in Sylvia with her portrayal of Kate, Greg's wife. If anyone's ever had reservations about caring for a pet, she's right there with you, balancing tough truth with hilarious Shakespearean one-liners. We asked her to speak!, and he's what she had to say! What's something special or new about our production that potential audiences need to know? I think audiences will be surprised by the fact that this is not just a funny play about a dog. It truly is a heartwarming story that speaks to anyone who has ever balanced a beloved pet and a significant other, especially when the two don't always get

As a certifiable dog lover, this show has always had a special place in my heart, and I was so thrilled to find it on the production schedule. Plus, Lisa said she would beat me up if I didn't audition. What's something special or new about our production that potential audiences need to know? The cast includes a newcomer to the Stageworks stage, Dev Whitten, and it's been a thrill acting against someone I've ne

Sit. And Stay.

Sit and stay a moment, because we've got a real treat for you. As the first mainstage of 2019 prepares to open, we asked its cast to sit down with us and sniffed out some nosy conversation. SYLVIA's title character is a famously bold, bright, and very physical role (Note: she's a dog). Actor Devin Whitten graciously gives us some insight into the making of her character Why did you audition for Sylvia? I've been in Los Angeles for the past three years doing film work and have just moved back home to Houston and needed some real live theatre in my life again. It was one of the first audition postings I found – I had heard incredible things about the company through the grapevine – and I was
