Fill the Party County Committees!
At the June Primary in 2022 the Conservative, Republican and Democratic Parties will be filling seats on their respective County Committees. If you are interested for running for one of these seats (there are 2 in each Election District in Erie County) and you are a registered member of the Democrat, Republican, or Conservative Party you will need to circulate a designating petition and get the lower of 5% or 500 of your Party's active enrolled members who live in the Election District you are running in to sign it.

THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF SANTA CLAUS O'Connell & Company/Ken-Ton Elmwood Commons
This is one of those complicated play situations.
It’s not one of those Christmas “pantos.”
Instead, “The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus” appears to be a musical aimed at an audience more used to sitting in Santa’s lap than sitting in a theater seat.

Jane Austen's EMMA
English novelist Jane Austen has been dead for more than two-centuries and for much of that time, she was a curiosity in the male dominated “Canon.”

THE GOLDEN GIRLS: The Lost Episodes, Vol 2 Alleyway Theatre
From the top, I have no strong feelings about “The Golden Girls,” even as friends are obsessed about this TV show of four older women sharing quarters under palm trees in Florida.

LOOPED The New Phoenix Theatre
Hollywood’s studio system didn’t produce true rebels, just rebels knowing who wrote their checks.

ALL IS CALM MusicalFare Theatre/Daemen College
Maybe not so much in London, because all monuments can be lost in that great city, but across Great Britain there are World War I monuments memorializing those from that community who died for…King and Country.

HAND TO GOD Road Less Traveled Productions/LLTP Theater
Most people, whether believers or, probably accept there is evil.
Many who are believers probably think the Devil exists and works among humans.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK Kavinoky Theatre
Do you remember how Bram Stoker started his story of “Dracula?”

SOMETHING WICKED American Repertory Theatre of WNY/Compass Performing Arts Center
Governments execute people.
Some are like China which does it in mass numbers.
Others are states like Texas, which does it in numbers unknown in the rest of the country.
It wasn’t always that way.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME All For One Theatre Productions/Shea's 710
Okay, a broken family, a bright but tortured kid who is probably on the autism spectrum and life in the vast suburbs of London.

If you are going to tell a story about tension between a man and a woman, it helps if you have strong performers for the role.

AMERICAN SON Ujima Company/Lorna C. Hill Theatre
Ah, The System.
You know: the criminal justice system, the social services system, the Deep State system which stole the re-election.

A CHORUS LINE O'Connell & Company/Ken-Ton Elmwood Commons
“A Chorus Line” is a theatrical cliché and a classic show.

ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT The Brazen-Faced Varlets/Alleyway Theatre
Just another woman in peril story, you know women who are threatened by men, basically because they are female and the men have plans for them.
That’s not what Shirley Lauro’s “All Through the Night” is about.
