Theater Talk: D'Youville's Kavinoky 'going to the dogs???' Saints (and Maggies) be praised!

Nov 13, 2020

Big doings on Buffalo's diverse West Side on the D'Youville College campus, with a major emphasis on a health professions hub, more acting jobs in the "Simulated Patient Program," and repurposing Holy Angels Church with all sorts of promising arts ideas floated, including a second theatrical space, and the Kavinoky possibly becoming an Actors Equity house. As the college drops their old "Spartans" mascot and embraces the more appropriate "Saints" ("Never refuse to serve") two new campus residents are St. Bernard puppies, Maggie and Saint, seen in a promotional video here.

Two Saint Bernard puppies, "Saint" and "Maggie," represent the new D'Youville College "Saints" as the college grows, including potential additional arts performance spaces.
