ABOUT BUFFALO GAL
A PRODUCTION COMPANY
Buffalo Gal Productions produces and creates original and rarely seen Broadway and Off-Broadway works by, for and about women, creating opportunities for artists and audience members to participate in new theatre experiences.
Buffalo Gal was founded by performer, director and producer Perrin Post in the spring of 1996 and was incorporated in 2001. In the fall of 2000, Buffalo Gal Productions negotiated the reopening of the Loring Theater space, bringing in Theater Latte Da and others as a shared venue for various companies.
Focusing on the production of works with a prominent female voice and presence, Buffalo Gal has successfully produced seven shows to date at a variety of Twin Cities area venues -- many so popular, they prompted five encore productions.
Buffalo Gal Productions creates and produces original works for and about individuals who identify as women and/or other underrepresented gender identities. Our goal is to create theater opportunities that engage artists and audiences in new ways that advance the understanding of inclusion, equality and community.
