The region’s new theater season officially debuts on Friday, September 18 with the 34th annual Curtain Up! celebration in Buffalo’s downtown Theater District. You start with dinner out or at the black-tie gala dinner at Shea’s. (Visit tdaofwny.com for more information.) Then you catch a show (8pm start times on this evening only). Afterward, playgoers pour into the streets for a party that lasts until 1am—and, in certain clubs and bars, much longer than that. First step is to choose your play: check out Playbill, Buffalo’s fall theater preview guide.
