Time & Location
About the Event
“New Works at New Phoenix” will showcase area artists - playwrights, actors, musicians, writers, and poets. The “Pay-What-You- Can” program has been developed to make new WNY arts programming accessible to all. “A Pitch from Satchel Paige” focuses on the life of the legendary professional baseball pitcher who was born in the early 1900’s in Mobile, Alabama.
After years of playing in Negro baseball leagues, even though Satchel Paige was the star player, he had to watch young Jackie Robinson break the color barrier by being allowed to enter the major league.
