A World Premiere musical from acclaimed playwright and Buffalo native, Tom Dudzick, that features an all-new holiday story ABOUT Buffalo’s favorite family, the Pazinskis, from his OVER THE TAVERN series. Christmas 1959 is not very merry for the Pazinskis. Dad is going through a mid-life depression and refuses to buy a Christmas tree. Sister Clarissa is threatening to expel 12-year-old Rudy for performing a blasphemous one-man Nativity Scene where he plays all the characters as Hollywood celebrities and everyone is worried that this may be their last Christmas together as a whole family. It’s a brand new chapter in this WNY tradition!

Written by the award-winning team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, SEUSSICAL,) and noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, RAGTIME was the winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score and Book and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by TIME Magazine "a triumph for the stage," this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other.
The winner of five of Tony Awards, this musical – written by the first Tony Award-winning female writing team for Best Original Score – takes audiences down memory lane as Alison recalls her childhood relationship with her father as well as her young adult discovery of her sexuality. Moving between past and present, Fun Home is a fresh perspective on how one sees life through adult eyes.
When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner.

Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
