The Kavinoky Theatre opened in the 1980 season, but the idea for it was born a decade earlier during a production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" on the original, unrestored theatre stage.  Restoration and refurbishing work was completed in time for the 1980-81 Season and the theatre was renamed The Kavinoky.  The Kavinoky Company has earned a reputation for consistently high-quality productions, a solid subscriber base of 2,500 and has received more awards than any other theatre in Buffalo.  The Kavinoky has had a seminal influence on the growth of live theatre in Buffalo.
