My family always goes to this place at least 2-3 times a year. Shea's has been around for the longest time. Great shows, nice pricing, my cup of tea!

One of Buffalo's gems! I just bought season tickets for the upcoming season. It is always a wonderful experience at Shea's.

This beautifully restored theater is a Buffalo highlight! The interior is magnificent and reminiscent of the glorious 1920's. Top notch entertainment and off-Broadway plays are always excellent! And there are many dining options within walking distance for a lovely evening out.

Wonderful experience! Theater is stunning and helpful staff. Our seats had terrific views of stage. Parking was easily found and reasonable. Much better than a trip to Toronto.

A beautiful theater with a lot of charm. I've seen Phantom of the Opera and Lion King at Shea's and both shows were quite good. The audio mix seemed a little off for Phantom but the show was fantastic none the less. Parking can be...More

I always park at the covered lot at 665 Washington Street. It is $10 and just a five minute walk from the Main Street entrance of Shea's.
