Memories from a Quarter Century of Making ART | Episode 2: Scott Behrend
Updated: Jun 1
Please join The New Phoenix Theatre as we walk down memory lane. As we continue to plan for next steps with the uncertainty of COVID-19, we are sharing testimonials from the amazing artists who emblazoned their imprint on our stage. We hope with all our hearts to be back with you soon.
For now, here is a message from Scott Behrend:
"Happy 25th Anniversary! Since its inception, the New Phoenix Theatre has served as a hub of creative opportunity that has helped to foster and develop hundreds of WNY creative artists – including me and Road Less Traveled. It was Richard Lambert who gave me my first professional directing experience twenty years ago at the New Phoenix with their production of ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE. I went on to direct a few plays for the company including one of my all time favorite productions – THE COUNTRY GIRL in 2003 with Lisa Vitrano, Phil Knoerzer and Brendan Powers. I will always be grateful to Richard for those opportunities and, a few years later, for letting Road Less Traveled rent the New Phoenix – at a very affordable rate – which helped us launch our company. Thank you Richard Lambert for all that you and the New Phoenix have done for our theater community and congratulations on 25 years in downtown Buffalo!"
