Meet the BUA's Jimmy Janowski

A local actor is starring in the Buffalo United Artists production of "The Birds Attack," a spoof of the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds.

The BUA actors bring humor to the scenes, with men playing all of the women characters. Jimmy Janowski stars in the role of Melanie Daniels, portrayed in the movie by actress Tippi Hendren.

WBFO's Eileen Buckley sat down with Janowski to discuss how actresses of the 1950s and 1960s inspired his stage career.
