The Department of Theatre and Dance has announced its 2019-20 season featuring a range of Broadway musicals, plays and dance that will give UB students the opportunity to work with nationally recognized directors and choreographers, and the public the chance to see original productions.

Tickets now are on sale for the full season of 13 productions.

Highlights include:

  • The classic play “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” (Oct. 23-27), directed by Vincent O’Neill, UB associate professor of acting and mime, and co-founder and artistic director of Buffalo’s Irish Classical Theatre Company.
  • “Guys and Dolls” (Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 22-24), considered by many to be the “perfect musical comedy, featuring guest director/choreographer Keith Andrews, who has directed and choreographed musicals and plays throughout the U.S., including the national tours of “The Full Monty” and “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh.”
  • “Everybody” (April 1-5), a modern take on the 15th-century morality play “Everyman” by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, who The New York Times calls “one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers.” The UB production will be directed by UB Assistant Professor Lindsay Hunter.
  • Zodiaque Dance Company’s fall concert (Oct. 17-20), directed by faculty members Kerry Ring and Jenna Del Monte, and featuring guest choreographers Ali Dietz and Bill Thomas, as well as faculty member Danielle Sheather
