"Terrific!" - Ted Hadley, The Buffalo News
The current production of Bounty: the Mutiny… confirms,
as if there were any doubt, that the deep thrust of
the New Phoenix performance space is one of
the most dynamic and exciting in town.
I found Bounty to be sheer theatrical delight.
-Anthony Chase, Artvoice

The New Phoenix Theatre explores the famous mutiny, which had at its core the collision between Captain Bligh, Fletcher Christian, and a crew sated by the erotic trappings of Tahiti.

Since opening doors in 1996, the New Phoenix Theatre on the Park has gained a reputation for award-winning, interdisciplinary theatre and for our continued support of new work and developing artists. Our 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 theatre stands.
In short, we look forward to an extraordinary season, and
we hope you’ll agree. With a full calendar of collaborating and
visiting artists, our board, our staff, our actors, and our sponsors are all working to make our humble, historic home into an inclusive enclave for the arts.
“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 — this past season was a blockbuster - but with this kind of backdrop, the stage has been set even before the actors appear.”

HOW TO STRETCH A DOLLAR BILL...
In 2011, the New Phoenix company became outright owners of its own, historic home, and is the only company in Buffalo to do so. We owe our longevity to our ability to stretch every dollar to its limit, and, of course, to our partners, donors, and friends. For just $125.00, you can purchase a Member's Pass which gives you seven seats to use any way you wish and us the means to continue our artistic goals, our renovations, and our community work. It’s the best deal in town, and you'll see every dollar put to maximum use on stage and around you as our award-winning company brings you cutting edge titles from London and New York, fresh takes on the classics, and original, inter-disciplinary work.
Come see for yourself! Please join us. You can email us for more details about tax-deductible, specific gifts at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
And welcome! We hope our historic home will become your
home for challenging theatre.
