San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

The Palo Alto Players present A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia.” The comic play — a community theater classic — involves a man, his wife, and a dog and the love triangle of sorts that they form. The show opens Saturday at 8 p.m. and continues through Sept. 30 at the Lucie Stern Theater, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. Tickets are $26 to $31.
