Since its opening in January 1926, this all-purpose arts facility in the Buffalo Theater District has presented the drama and comedy of some the most famous stars and scenes in the 20th Century. From the silly antics of the Marx Brothers and Bob Hope to powerful performances in The Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon, Shea has seen it all. The National Register of Historic Places bestowed status upon the building in 1975 and today this baroque inspired facility still attracts some 300,000 patrons annually with its eclectic combination of Broadway musicals, opera, dance, children's programming, concerts and classic movies. Some patrons come just to see the theater in order to be dazzled with the ornate filigreed Rococo style and Tiffany-designed crystal chandeliers.
Located just southeast of Buffalo, in the suburb of Orchard Park, this stadium serves as the home of the National Football League's Buffalo Bills. Built in 1973, the stadium was originally called Rich Stadium, but today it is named New Era Field for its sponsors. It seats nearly 75,000 for football and is used almost exclusively for the gridiron, though on occasion the stadium will hold concerts and other events when the massive capacity is needed for ticketholders.
