The group features professional actors that foment the passion of children for the performing arts and other creative, musical pursuits. Now, in its 475-seat, ultra-plush and ultra-modern home, the theater can carry forth that mandate—with the help of its dedicated volunteers.
Billed as Buffalo's premier alternative theater, the New Phoenix, which first opened its doors in 1996, offers both interpretations of classic productions, as well as new and innovative contemporary productions.

The building had fallen into disrepair and figuratively rose from the ashes—like the legendary phoenix—when it was renovated by the theater company. Richard Lambert is the Executive Director and Robert Waterhouse the Artistic Director. - Christine A. Smyczynski
