News   PHOTO CALL: Gurney's Buffalo Gal Opens Off-Broadway at Primary Stages
Susan Sullivan, Mark Blum and the cast of Primary Stages' New York premiere of A.R. Gurney's Buffalo Gal celebrated their Off-Broadway opening night Aug. 5.

Mark Lamos (Cymbeline, Indian Blood) staged the new work at 59E59 Theaters, which features Sullivan and Blum as well as Carmen M. Herlihy, Jennifer Regan, James Waterston and Dathan B. Williams. Buffalo Gal is billed as "a comedy that centers around Amanda, a once successful television personality whose star is now fading. Life imitates art as she returns to her hometown of Buffalo to star in Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard. Just as she is connecting with her roots – both on stage and off – she is called back to Hollywood for a role that could recharge her career. Will her love of theatre be enough to keep her in Buffalo?"

Here's a peek at opening night held at Sarabeth's in New York City:
