In the News: Theater Alumnus Stars in 'Disgraced'

Buffalo State alumnus Afrim Gjonbalaj, '06, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theater, is back in Buffalo starring in Disgraced, according to a recent Buffalo News article by Colin Dabkowski.

2017 - 2018 Season

Upcoming Shows!


In 1930’s Germany, Cliff is a struggling American writer seeking inspiration for his next novel. His life is forever changed when he enters the seedy Kit Kat Klub. Soon he is swept up in a strange and mysterious world of indulgence, sex, drinking, and (of course) dancing, while the Nazi party ominously rises to power in the background. Featuring performances from Buffalo State’s dance company and a gender-bending cast - all presided over by a mysterious, omnipresent Emcee - CABARET promises to be a deeply moving and unforgettable evening. Willkommen!
