“A beautiful theater and great place to see a show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Shea's gets all of the big, beautiful touring shows and always has knowledgeable, enthusiastic audiences in this gorgeous, ornate theater that's a throwback to a bygone era. You won't regret coming to downtown Buffalo for a show at Shea's!

“Amazing Venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

If anyone says that Buffalo doesn't have Character then they are clearly unaware of the architecture we have such as Shea's. Amazing building and great shows!

“Concerts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of the best venues for concerts in WNY, especially after the renovations were completed. Better seating, lighting, etc makes an extremely pleasurable concert experience.

“A great place to see a play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The seats are all excellent. We've gone numerous times and never had a bad seat or view of the stage. The parking lots are convenient. Bathrooms are clean. And they sell big cookies in the lobby that ROCK!
