Susan Louise O'Connor
Sylvia

The New Theatre

Dinner theater is known mostly for two things: bland entrées and its insistence on making erstwhile TV and movie stars perform well-worn standards. So it was refreshing when a non-household name took the stage and made diners forget all about their food (which, at the New Theatre, is quite good). We're talking about Susan Louise O'Connor, who played the title character in Sylvia, about a dog coming between a husband and a wife mired in a ho-hum marriage. O'Connor, working without a costume, transformed fully into a scrappy pooch, sniffing crotches, scratching itches and bounding onto forbidden furniture. She gave a shot of youthful energy to a tradition too easily associated with declining stars and iceberg lettuce. Credit to New Theatre, then, and a big woof-woof-woof to the brilliant O'Connor.
