THE MAI Andrews Theatre/Irish Classical Theatre Company
At the heart of the luxury home in Marina Carr’s “The Mai,” is an illusory large window looking out across an Irish lake.
After seeing the show, scenic designer Collin Ranney should have added a laundry basket and a clothesline because of the degree of family dirty laundry scattered through Carr’s script.

STOMP Out Hunger with Shea’s Buffalo Theatre and FeedMore WNY
STOMP has made it its mission to partner with food banks across the country to STOMP Out Hunger. The show began its quest to reduce hunger in North America with a partnership with Philabundance, the Philadelphia region’s largest hunger relief organization, in December of 2007. The producers were looking for a way to give back to the community and with the timing of the holidays the partnership was a natural one. However, due to the current economic climate including high unemployment rates and state budget cuts, hunger organizations have seen an overwhelming demand for food assistance. As such, STOMP has dedicated itself to bringing attention to the heightened needs of food charities across the country all year round by sponsoring canned food drives and donating ticket proceeds in as many cities as possible.

Collaboration the key in addressing recent snow storm and blizzard
As we all know, our region recently dealt with two major winter weather events as Mother Nature hit Erie County hard in November with a major snow storm and then again last month with the terrible Christmas Blizzard of 2022. While much has been said about the impact of both, and the history books will certainly provide great detail about the devastating blizzard, I am proud of the collaboration that took place throughout the county. We coordinated a response that eventually grew to include thousands of workers and hundreds of pieces of equipment of all types that assisted hard-hit communities.

BEEHIVE Daemen University/MusicalFare Theatre
All the way through “Beehive,” I kept expecting Jeff Kaye’s ghost to come onto the MusicalFare stage.
He was the DJ of my youth, here and in Boston in the period of the Sixties rhythmically portrayed in this jukebox musical.
