THE NEW PHOENIX THEATRE CANCELS THE 3/12/20-3/14/20 PERFORMANCES DUE TO HEALTH CONCERNS
BUFFALO, NY: The New Phoenix Theatre on the Park announces the cancellation of this weekend’s performances of “Kiss of the Spiderwoman”, Thursday March 12, Friday March 13, and Saturday March14, 2020, at 8:00 pm, following the guidelines announced today by Governor Cuomo.
We urge everyone to practice caution and follow the CDC’s guidelines for preventing the spread of disease at this time. We appreciate your patience as all ticket holders will be contacted over the coming days to arrange for exchanges or refunds. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate updates to you as news develops.
The New Phoenix Theatre’s mission is to present both classical and contemporary plays in ways that speak to our community, to rediscover the theatrical experience through the spirit of collaboration, and to revitalize the neighborhood in which our theater stands.
The Historic Home of The New Phoenix Theatre was built in 1884, on land deeded to Buffalo by Ebenezer Johnson, Buffalo’s first mayor, and originally served as a lecture hall for the Buffalo Seminary, a “séance house,” a vaudeville house, and then a soup kitchen, until founder Richard A. Lambert restored the space, with the assistance of many grants over the years from NYSCA, Erie County, The City of Buffalo, the Rupp Foundation, M & T Bank, the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, and the Golden-Goldman Foundation.
