Buffalo, NY -- The Center for the Arts at the University at Buffalo will present Megan Mullally and Supreme Music Program at 8 p.m. on Feb. 18 in the Mainstage Theatre in the Center for the Arts on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

Mullally can be seen weekly in her Emmy and three-time SAG Award-winning role of "Karen Walker" on NBC's "Will & Grace."

Mullally made her television series debut with Elaine Stritch and Ellen Burstyn on "The Ellen Burstyn Show." Further television credits include a variety of small series as well as guest starring roles on "Seinfeld," "Frasier" and "China Beach" among others. She appeared opposite Stanley Tucci as Walter Winchell's wife in Paul Mazursky's award-winning bio-pic "Winchell" and recently starred opposite Juliet Stevenson in Lifetime's "The Pact."

"The range and depth of Mullally's voice and talent is extraordinary," says Show Business Weekly.

Mullally made her Broadway debut in the 1994 revival of Grease with Rosie O'Donnell. She then received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for her performance as Rosemary in the Broadway revival of "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" opposite Matthew Broderick.

Los Angeles theater credits include The Berlin Circle at The Evidence Room Theater for which Mullally won the 2000 Backstage West Garland Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play and the LA Weekly Award for Best Leading Female Performance. Mullally also has appeared in "Mayhem at The Evidence Room," as well as a variety of plays and musicals in both Chicago and Los Angeles.

She appeared in the feature film "Anywhere But Here" and starred in "Everything Put Together," directed by "Monster Ball's" Marc Forster, an entry in the 2000 Sundance Film Festival's main competition.

Her recent concert appearances include The Allen Room at The Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, The Seattle Symphony (all with her band Supreme Music Program), The Disney Concert Hall where she appeared as a soloist, and Chicago's Goodman Theatre. Mullally has made two records with SMP, one of which -- Big as a Berry -- is available on CD.
