The Trojan Women

Buffalo Public Theatre is using a fabulous photograph to promote their current production of Euripides’s The Trojan Women. Three legendary characters—Hecuba, the fallen queen of Troy; her clairvoyant daughter, Cassandra; and her widowed daughter-in-law, Andromache—stare into the lens of the camera with unflinching defiance. The characters are played by Lorna C. Hill, Shanntina Moore, and Andrea Natale-Profeta, and the image clearly communicates the theme and tone of Euripides’s powerful and efficient account of the women who survived the brutal defeat of Troy, only to become slaves and concubines.

Buffalo Moon

Buffalo Moon is a deeply personal new musical by Richard Lambert with music by Steven Borowski. The show tells four independent stories with shared themes and geography. Each is about yearning and loss. Each is primarily set in Buffalo.
