We commissioned some amazing WNY writers to create a series of short monologues all about Buffalo here and now. Then, together with Full Circle Studios, we filmed on location across the region.
CURRENTS: 716 is made up of many stories woven into one night of theatre. With your ticket purchase for any night, you will see them all!
