Buffalo United Artists is a self-supporting collective of professional theater artists working constantly to create accessible, professional-quality theater consistent with the great passion we feel for our art. We do not shy away from controversy, nor do we direct our production choices towards mass appeal or popular opinion. We believe one of the greatest endeavors we can pursue is to use our craft to play an active and visible role in the service of our community. We aspire to present theater that entertains, enlightens, and captures the imagination.
Under the leadership of founder Javier Bustillos, BUA has, beginning with its inaugural production of A...My Name is Alice in January 1992, produced a diverse range of shows in theaters all over the Buffalo area. Seeking provocative plays that resonate with a contemporary audience, highlights have included successful productions of The Boys in the Band, Last Summer at Blue Fish Cove, Ten Percent Revue, The Baltimore Waltz, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love, Poor Super Man, The House of Bernarda Alba, Jeffrey, Psycho Beach Party, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Laramie Project, Rebecca, and Doubt. Many of these represented regional premieres. BUA is committed to uniting the finest performers in the city to present a challenging array of plays.
