Welcome to the award winning Buffalo Nights Theatre Company. Buffalo Nights was formed in 1991 out of a group of UCLA students and recent alumni in an effort to continue to present quality theatre to the Los Angeles community. With each production we strive to provide everyone involved, from actors to audience, a theatrical journey inspiring new perspectives.


What Went On

Crazy Drunk

We closed Robert Fieldsteel's CRAZY DRUNK after a terrific run as part of the [Inside] the Ford HOT PROPERTIES SERIES at the John Anson Ford Theatre in Los Angeles. The production was directed by Matt Almos. Check out our WHAT'S HAPPENING page for all the info!

Buffalo Nights hosted the LA Weekly Theater Awards on April 26, 2004 at the Los Angeles Theater Center.  Check out LA Weekly's site for the recap!

J.B. by Archibald MacLeish played to sold-out houses at the Powerhouse Theatre in Santa Monica, CA and closed June 2nd. The Pulitzer Prize winning play was directed by company member Brian Kite. Look what the Critics had to say about J.B.!


"Exceptional revival."
"Goorjian's touching hero builds to a heart-rending, hollow-eyed climax."
"Director Brian Kite and his exuberant company achieve considerable impact."


"Leave it to the Buffalo Nights Theatre Company to unearth the challenging, relevant, but rarely performed play and produce it with a freshness and vigor to make it feel newly penned."
"With its exceptional cast and evocative design, it's a production not to be missed."

The Santa Monica Mirror review


"MacLeish's play is stuffed with humor, wit, and immediacy"
"Frazier and Sanchez are perfect"
"Tucker is terrific"
"Frazier has a fascinatingly droll take on Zuss that's worth the price of admission."
"Fantastic support is also provided by Maynard, Weisman, and Garcia."

Our last Los Angeles production, Anatol, by Arthur Schnitzler, adapted by Michael Robinson, closed after a great run. It received "Best Bet" in the Los Angeles Times, "Pick of the Week" in LA Weekly, and "Critic's Choice" in Backstage West. Anatol was directed by Jessica Kubzansky.

Our previous show, Jean Giraudoux's, The Apollo of Bellac, was a smash hit, playing to sold out houses and garnering many awards, including a Garland for "Production of the Year." The Apollo of Bellac was also nominated for seven LA Weekly awards.
