Mean Girls Flags Off Diverse Broadway 2019/2020 Season at Shea
Four shows will be gracing the Shea’s Buffalo Theatre for the Broadway 2019/2020 season.
Buffalo will host a number of shows including the Broadway adaptation of Tina Fey’s movie ‘Mean Girls’. This will be the fourth time Buffalo Theatre has acted as the flag off point of a show. Its kick-off date of the series is September 21, 2019.
“The programming perfectly encapsulates diversity. It is a perfect blend of classic and contemporary pleasers that are bound to cause excitement and inspiration,” said Shea’s president Michael Murphy.
It has been a great season for Shea as subscription reached 18,632 overtaking their past record. The theater recorded its most productive three-week engagement when it featured “Hamilton.”
An increase in the demand for tickets, and a large number of shows available has led to the theater increasing its subscription from six to seven shows.
Shea’s president cannot hold his excitement, and he has a soft spot for “Come from Away,” which the true-life story of 7,000 airline passengers stuck in a rather small town called Newfoundland following the events of 9/11 terrorist attack.
“That show is something I connect with,” said Murphy. “It showed everyone that good people still exist in this world, the care and love shown by the people of Newfoundland, showed the rest of the world how to be kind.”
Murphy is still looking forward to the award-winning “The Band’s Visit.” The story follows up the relationship that builds up when an Egyptian Police Band on a mission to a remote Israeli village.
“The story shows how to ancient enemies can connect and unite,” said Murphy.
