Going on the sixth-year of revelry, the American Repertory Theater of WNY is celebrating the end of Carnival season as ART/WNY invites all to "Laissez les bon temp roulle" at the Mardi Gras Celebration on Fat Tuesday, February 12th, 7:00 pm to Midnight, Bittner Hall located on 16 Linwood Avenue, Buffalo NY (located in the Church of the Ascension).

Additionally, the evening festivities include the toe-tapping, quick-witted uplifting 20's-30's jazz sounds of Doctor Jazz and the Jazzbugs, the fais do-do booty movin' music of Black Rock Zydeco and the Americana roots-rock of Dick Whiskey.
ART/WNY wants all to keep in mind that the celebration's "bon moment pour etre avaient" with the evening filled with good folks, good music, heaps of rice & beans, gumbo and Bubba's Hurricanes.
Let the good times roll!
