A play written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lanford Wilson continues on stage at the New Phoenix Theater in Buffalo. As WBFO's Eileen Buckley reports, it features a local television meteorologist who portrays a priest in 'Angels Fall.'

For years, Mike Randall has performed Mark Twain before audiences across the area, but he has also spent a full career as a meteorologist and reporter at WKBW-TV. 

Randall is portraying Father Doherty in 'Angels Fall,' presented by The New Phoenix Theatre Company in Buffalo.

"It's a play about change and it's a play about excepting change," said Randall.
