Theater Talk: A 'PLONY' work comes to Buffalo

Oct 23, 2015

What is a "PLONY?" It's a Playwright Living Outside New York (City) and for a number of talented writers it's very difficult to establish a reputation outside of The Big Apple.

Written by a "PLONY" - Michael McKeever - DANIEL'S HUSBAND is up at the Alleyway through November 7

Playwright Michael McKeever lives in south Florida, and despite having 24 plays to his credit, is one of those regional writers living outside of New York City who has yet to gain traction and become a nationally recognized playwrite. He is known for plays that bring big issues down to a human level. His play, DANIEL’S HUSBAND, presented by Buffalo United Artists, directed by Javier Bustillos is up at the Alleyway Theatre (near Shea's on Main Street) through November 7, Fridays and Saturdays only, with an 8pm curtain. It deals with a same-sex couple who puts off marriage, and then one of them is stricken with a serious illness.

We have one opening this week, MY NAME IS ASHER LEV, a play by Aaron Posner based on the novel by Chaim Potok, presented by The Jewish Repertory Theatre, directed by Saul Elkin through November 15 at  The Maxine and Robert Seller Theatre, 2640 North Forest Road, Getzville.
