SECOND GENERATION THEATRE
Welcome to The New Phoenix Theatre... we've been expecting you. After nearly 20 years of presenting exceptional alternative theater, The New Phoenix Theatre is proud to continue its mission of showcasing its interdisciplinary collaboration with the area’s finest artists.
This season, you'll see the return of our theater company in residence, Second Generation Theatre Company, and the welcome addition of Buffalo Public Theatre.
WINNER OF COUNTLESS AWARDS
...for bold, risk-taking artistic work, and dubbed “Buffalo’s premier alternative theatre” by ArtVoice, The New Phoenix Theatre has earned its reputation for ensemble-driven and inter-disciplinary theatre and its continued support of the area’s finest and emerging new artists. Our mission is to present new and classic theatre in ways that speak to our community, and the chance to revitalize the beautiful Johnson Park neighborhood in which our theatre stands.
Expect award-winning, ensemble-driven interpretations of the classics, company-developed original work, and a warm welcome!
We hope you'll join us again this season for what we feel is the city's most collaborative, art filled theatrical residence. Like the city of Buffalo itself, we hope you'll celebrate the resurgence of our humble home on Johnson Park.
“The building which houses the dynamic New Phoenix Theatre company was built in 1884, which makes it the oldest theatre structure in Buffalo. The building at 95 Johnson Park had served functions from soup kitchen to lecture hall before it was abandoned and ultimately rescued by Richard Lambert, NP’s executive director. Though the building has gotten a much needed facelift, going to the New Phoenix still feels a bit like time travel, [given] the atmosphere, augmented by the autographed actor photos that line the walls and the new Keith Waterhouse Memorial Bar, modeled after the famed Blue Bar in Manhattan’s Algonquin Hotel. You never know what magic you’ll see — but with this kind of backdrop, the stage has been set even before the actors appear.”
