    "It's Only a Play" star Matthew Broderick will be back on Broadway in another comedy this fall.

    It’s been almost two months since Matthew Broderick was on Broadway. But the two-time Tony winner, last seen in Terrence McNally’s “It’s Only a Play,” will be back on the boards this fall, in the A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia.”

    The production begins previews Oct. 2 at Broadway’s Cort Theatre, prior to an Oct. 27 opening.

    Broderick will join Julie White (“Airline Highway”) as married couple Greg and Kate, who form a complicated relationship with their dog, Sylvia (Tony-winner Annaleigh Ashford, last seen in “You Can’t Take it With You”).

    This will be the first time “Sylvia” has been on Broadway. The comedy opened in 1995 at the Manhattan Theater Club, starring Broderick’s wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, in the title character.

    Direction for its Broadway bow will come from Daniel Sullivan (“The Country House”). Robert Sella (“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”) will also star.
