An Update on the Upcoming Subscription Season from Randall Kramer

Posted on July 22, 2020

Hello! I’m Randy Kramer from MusicalFare Theatre.

MusicalFare has some exciting news for you today!

We’ve had many of you contact us wondering what would be happening with our 2020-2021 Season while we are in these uncertain times.  And, of course, many things depend on governmental guidance and the safety of our patrons, casts and staff remains the paramount concern.

MusicalFare has come up with an option that we believe will suit everyone’s needs while meeting those concerns.

Normally, our 2020-2021 subscription season would run from September of 2020 through August of 2021.  This is the traditional time-frame for theater schedules in WNY.

But, because we want to take every precaution regarding health and safety issues, we’ve decided to break that tradition. 

MusicalFare will be beginning it’s next season in January of 2021 and it will run through December of 2021, making it a theatre season which all takes place in one calendar year.

How will we do this?  It’s actually relatively simple.

MusicalFare will be taking their previously announced fall 2020 productions of NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT (Sept-Oct) and ALL IS CALM (Nov-Dec) and moving them to the same exact time slots in 2021.

The season will now begin in January of 2021 and will look like this:

AMERICAN RHAPSODY (2/17/21 – 3/21/21) – Show #1
THE OTHER JOSH COHEN (4/14/21 – 5/16/21) – Show #2
A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER (7/7/21 – 8/15/21) – Show #3
NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT (9/8/21 – 10/10-21) – Show #4
ALL IS CALM (11/10/21 – 12/12/21) – Show #5 (No performance on Thanksgiving Day)

What do you have to do to facilitate changing the dates of your tickets? Absolutely nothing!

To make this as easy as possible, the seats you had previously reserved for NICE WORK… and ALL IS CALM, will automatically be moved to the applicable date in the new slot.

For example:  if you had previously reserved your seats for the first Thursday performance of NICE WORK… , your new tickets will STILL be the first Thursday performance.  Your seat row and number will not change.  You’ll have the same seats you originally chose, just one year later.

You will receive a confirmation from the box office notifying you of the adjustment.  That way you can keep track of your performances with ease.

If you purchased a Flex Pass, you’ll still be able to use your tickets on all five of these productions.  Just pick your dates when you know your schedule!


We will also be considering, depending on governmental guidance, a small, socially distant production for Fall 2020.  We will make that final determination at a later time.  If that production does happen, subscribers will be able to use their subscription tickets for this production as well, if they’d rather.  It’s the ultimate flexibility!

We know that the last few months have been difficult.  But please know that we miss seeing each and every one of you.  The MusicalFare Experience is truly unique and we hope to be able to provide you with many musical memories very soon.

MusicalFare's Black Lives Matter Statement

Posted on June 9, 2020

MusicalFare Theatre is deeply saddened and angered by the injustice the Black community continues to face. We are committed to standing together with, listening to and elevating the voices of the Black community - onstage, on our creative and administrative staffs, and on our board - now and at all times.

We are not neutral. We reject white supremacy and racism, and we support the ongoing fight for racial equality. We also recognize the systemic inequalities in our field and know that our words are only as valuable as their accompanying actions.

We commit to developing concrete anti-racist actions to help move us all forward.

There is so much we don’t know. We re-commit to a culture of listening and self-challenge. We as an organization cannot fulfill our mission and truly commit to our core values unless all voices are protected and elevated equally.

Black Lives Matter.
