CurtainUp2009You have a little under a month to start making fabulous plans for the 28th Annual Curtain Up! 2009. Curtain Up! is Buffalo at its best; celebrating the arts and getting together for a fun and classy evening.

Curtain Up! is the Buffalo Niagara community’s celebration of the opening of the theatre season. Thousands will gather in downtown’s Theatre District to celebrate the city’s rich live theater scene. The celebration appeals to everyone. From a Creative Black-Tie Dinner to a free street party, you can see what this in on many people’s social calendars.
