- THE BUFFALO NEWS
"'Harvey'" offers Buffalo a charming seasonal gift."
"Richard Lambert was born to play the gently delusional Elwood P. Dowd... Tammy Hayes McGovern gains everyone’s sympathy as the conflicted Vita... David Lundy as Chumley... is a hoot."
NY THEATRE GUIDE REVIEW
"Tom Makar and the cast do a fantastic job staging one of the great stories in theatre… Richard Lambert, founder and Executive Director of the New Phoenix, is spot on as Elwood, overflowing with the proper balance of charisma and selfless confidence."
THE FIRST THURSDAY PERFORMANCE OF EACH PRODUCTION IS A PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN PREVIEW.
With the generous help of M&T Bank, we offer all Thursday performances on a pay-what-you-can basis.
Please note the first Thursday of each production is a
Pay-What-You Can preview; openings and opening receptions with the cast and crew occur on the first Friday of each run. Press are generally welcomed on the first Friday.

WELCOME TO OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON
20 years ago, the New Phoenix Theatre on the Park was a boarded-up soup kitchen called the American Rescue Workers. Today, we are proud of our reputation for creating the very best ensemble-driven and enter-disciplinary form of theater offered.
Buffalo is back baby!
In recent years our theater has received recognition for excellence from many sources including ‘Most Unique Theater Space’ from Buffalo Spree Magazine, and ‘Buffalo’s Premier Alternative Theater’ from Artvoice.
This season, we welcome Kelli Bocock-Natale to the Phoenix as our new Artistic Director. Given her stellar work at the Phoenix over the years, Kelli is the perfect fit to lead us into the future.
With four mainstage productions, three special events, our annual fundraiser, the Phoenix Festivus, and classes to educate and entertain, Kelli and I feel proud to offer a full season of our own brand of unique, cutting edge theater.
As we head into our third decade, won’t you join us? Welcome back to the comfort of theater.
“The building which houses the dynamic New Phoenix Theatre company was built in 1884, which makes it the oldest theatre structure in Buffalo. The building at 95 Johnson Park had served functions from soup kitchen to lecture hall before it was abandoned and ultimately rescued by Richard Lambert, NP’s executive director. Though the building has gotten a much needed facelift, going to the New Phoenix still feels a bit like time travel, [given] the atmosphere, augmented by the autographed actor photos that line the walls and the new Keith Waterhouse Memorial Bar, modeled after the famed Blue Bar in Manhattan’s Algonquin Hotel. You never know what magic you’ll see — but with this kind of backdrop, the stage has been set even before the actors appear.”
