Texas Homos: Buffalo United Artists: Premiere Nov 13

(Buffalo, NY) - On Friday, November 13, Buffalo United Artists (The BUA Theatre) located at 119 W. Chippewa Street Downtown Buffalo, premieres "Texas Homos" by Jan Buttran. This production runs from November 13 - December 5, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm. Directed by Javier Bustillos, the cast features: Eric Rawski, Chris Kelly, Kurt Erb, Darryl Hart, and Caitlin Coleman.

The production:
Cecil and Jim Bob have been caught engaging in gay sex in a police sting at a public restroom in Tyler, Texas. Since one is the town doctor and the other a preacher, and since both have wives, and children, this creates more than a few problems. A third man caught in the sting complicates matter further: he thinks they should all enter a guilty plea and become gay heroes. Comic and compelling!

Tickets: $23.00 general admission, $20.00 for seniors, $18.00 for members, $15.00 for students. Group rates are available. Cash only please, no credit cards. Check accepted from BUA Angels only. Check out the BUA's 24 hr reservation line at: 716- 886-9239 and visit them online. Directions.

Buffalo United Artists is a self-supporting collective of professional theater artists working constantly to create accessible, professional-quality theater consistent with the great passion we feel for our art. We do not shy away from controversy, nor do we direct our production choices towards mass appeal or popular opinion. We believe one of the greatest endeavors we can pursue is to use our craft to play an active and visible role in the service of our community. We aspire to present theater that entertains, enlightens, and captures the imagination.

The BUA (1992-2009) has produced more than 120 diverse shows in theatres all over the area. They are very proud to have brought some of the most challenging theater to Buffalo, and to be able to claim a number of firsts for our area. Some highlights include: The Boys in the Band , Last Summer at Blue Fish Cove , Ten Percent Revue , The Baltimore Waltz, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love , Poor Super Man , Jeffrey , and Love! Valour! Compassion! BUA is committed more than ever to uniting the finest performers in the city to bring you a provocative array of plays.

BUA does not produce plays for the goal of making money. They produce theater they feel has a message that needs to be heard in our community. BUA uses theater as a vehicle for social change, outreach, and a means of communicating important aspects of the human experience that Buffalo audience members might not otherwise view and explore. They do so with attention to artistic excellence, an eye on what is current and pertinent in today's world of theater, a passion for achieving and maintaining the highest possible standard of artistry and integrity, while constantly challenging themselves to strive for even greater goals.

BUA is a proud member of The Theater Alliance of Buffalo. They are also recipients of Artie Awards in numerous varied genres. To support BUA (as a Buffalo Angel for $25): Buffalo United Artists P.O.
