“Excellent theater !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

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 to every play. You can tell that a lot of care & attention to detail was taken in their creation. Also, my friends mistakenly thought that the actors were students from the college but that's not the case. These are professional actors and you are bound to catch some of the better known actors in Buffalo like Saul Elkin and Lisa Ludwig, among many other excellent thespians. There is a concession stand selling candy, cookies , coffee, tea, soft drinks & bottles water (also available in the theater itself) but no alcoholic beverages. Definitely take in a production & you won't be sorry. This theater is so much more intimate than Sheas yet very ornate too. Lots of free parking available.
