Theater Talk: 'Over the Tavern' is back for Curtain Up!
After 20 years, Buffalo playwright Tom Dudzik's "Over the Tavern" continues to delight audiences, this time at the Kavinoky Theater through October 5. Set in 1959, the story of 12 year-old Rudy who goes "knuckle to ruler" with his teacher, Sister Clarissa, has been tightened up a bit, but all of the familiar cultural references remain intact. It's "Curtain Up!" tonight and most shows start at 8 p.m. to accommodate diners taking advantage of the variety of restaurants which are part of downtown Buffalo's renaissance.
