This play was very entertaining. It is a sequel to Over the Tavern. We are season ticket holders at this lovely theater and the cast of any production is always very professional and accomplished. If you go I recommend sitting in the center balcony but not the first row where leg room is minimum.

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.

The current play at this beautiful theatre is "Journey's End" and it is a wonderfully dramatic production. The set is pure genius ( as are most all the sets at the Kav) and truly evokes the time and place this play occurs. It is a story taking place during World War I in the trenches of France and an officer's... More

When I was a young student, I detested math. Playwright David Auburn apparently fared much better in math. His Proof, written in 2000 won him the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play. Catherine (Jessica Wegrzyn) is the daughter of Robert (Peter Palmisano), a recently deceased math mastermind and University of Chicago professor. Unlike me... More

This is truly one of the best things Buffalo has to offer. 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
