UB Center for the Arts reveals schedule for upcoming season

American Idiot

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

UB Center for the Arts released the schedule for its upcoming season, and tickets go on sale Friday—and you might want to get ‘em sooner than later, because a bunch of these events have been known to sell out at other venues.

Expect everything from Broadway musicals and comedy, to dance, films and fiddlers. Buffalo.com’s Ben K. is especially amped for Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, stars of ABC’s “Modern Family.” They’ll be in town Oct. 20. I’m all for seeing Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy—“masters of the fiddle”—perform in the spring. There’s seriously something for everyone, so take a gander at the full season lineup below:

Sept. 8-9 Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT
Sept. 22 Back to Buffalo 4: UB Dance Alumni All-Star Concert
