Theatre Talk: Friday, February 27, 2009


By Jim Santella and Anthony Chase, WBFO


Buffalo, NY – Tony talks about the plot of The Beauty Queen of Leenane at the New Phoenix Theatre. It seems comedic, but there's NO sweetness, and Tony says "watch the stove." Reading The Visit scares Jim, so he's not sure what to expect from Ujima Theatre Company's stage presentation, featuring Lorna C. Hill and Peter Palmisano at Theatreloft. Tony says it's another serious play, with some comic elements. At UB's Black Box Theatre, UB's Department of Theatre and Dance presents Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, the Jewish Repertory Theatre stages its first musical Hello Muddah Hello Faddah: The Allan Sherman Musical, at the Road Less Traveled theater, and Musicalfare Theatre is showing Sunday in the Park with George.
