This is a great place to see a play. We were there two days ago to see the play Family Furniture and it was terrific. It is a small theater, holds maybe 300 or so, the seats are very comfortable and the sightlines,with a few exceptions, are great.

One would never expect a theater like this to exist when one walks up the prosiac concrete steps in front of D'Youville College. then you get inside and Bam it is like something like the experience Dorothy must have had when she first discovers Oz. Then it gets... More

The Kavinoky Theater is located on the campus of D'Youville College. I have seen many productions and have never been disappointed. Every seat is excellent with good sight lines. It has a balcony (be careful - it's rather steep up there but you can see wonderfully)The sets are fabulous! They are so detailed and always add such a realistic touch... More
