From Buffalo Rising, 3/19/08

One of Buffalo’s greatest gifts is certainly Shakespeare in Delaware Park. The plays are free and something that many of us look forward to not just for entertainment, but as a rite of Western New York’s brilliant summer. In order to keep these grand experiences alive, please consider joining the 14th Annual Fabulous Feast on March 29th. It will be held at the stunning Connecticut Street Armory from 6-10PM.

It’s always a good time with auctions galore (live, fishbowl and silent), dancing, singing and sword fighting! The feast is a show in itself with a cornucopia of wine and beer, hors d’oeuvres, cheddar and broccoli soup, a salad of greens, goat cheese, blood oranges and vinaigrette, chicken and turkey drumsticks, stuffed pork loin, potatoes, macaroni and cheese, vegetables, dessert and coffee. As icing on the cake, per se, the Up Start Crow Awards will also be presented. This is SDP’s biggest and most important fundraiser of the year and really offers something for everyone to enjoy so come one, come all! This year, Shakespeare in Delaware Park will be presenting King Lear and The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Shakespearean attire is welcomed but not required. For more information please go to the SDP website:

Tickets are $65 for members and $75 for non-members. They can be purchased through Paypal on the Feast’s webpage or you can call SDP’s office for tickets at 716.856.4533.
