Founded in 1997, Jim Simpson’s cozy, well-appointed black-box venue has presented avant-garde experimentation (such as the work of Mac Wellman) and politically provocative satires (by the likes of A.R. Gurney and Jonathan Reynolds). A 40-seat basement theatre is home to the Flea’s resident young acting company, the Bats.
Flea Theater 41 White St
What's on at Flea Theater
The prolific A.R. Gurney shuffles back to Buffalo for his latest chronicle of upstate WASP nests. Thomas Kail directs the premiere, with a cast headlined by Carolyn McCormick, Peter Scolari and Andrew Keenan-Bolger.
Beer, bands and youth fuel this late-night competition, in which the Flea's enthusiastic resident company the Bats pit serial plays against one another, with winners returning the next week with another speedily written installment.
