Inclusive Theater of WNY opened its inaugural play on Thursday, October 11 and held a well attended gala before the play on Saturday, October 13th.
The play, “And Where Will You Put the Things You Save?” was written by Baroness von Smith, a WNY playwright and directed by Virginia Brannon. The talented cast includes veteran WNY actors Steve Brachmann, Jessica Levesque and John Profeta (just off his powerhouse performance in Farenheit 451 at Subversive Theatre).
Audiences have been enthusiastic and we’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the play, the chemistry between the actors, and the subject matter. Read the review by Cherie Messore of Buffalo Theater Guidehere. The play runs through October 28th at Alleyway Theatre. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 2pm. You can purchase tickets here.
ITOWNY has gone green! Sure, we will have copies of the playbill at our shows but we love our environment and want to save as many trees as we can, so a color version of the playbill is now available online!

John Profeta joins the cast of And Where Will You Put the Things You Save? as Alex Rubens – Nick’s fiancé and an adjunct science professor and environmental activist! Nick navigates life with his fiancé and his sister – both with their share of challenges – calmly and rationally while at the same time, rebelling as an activist!
John’s portrayal of Nick is inspired and the chemistry with his two co-stars in palpable! We are so thankful to have him in our inaugural performance!
Next up is Jessica Levesque! Jess plays the role of Ericka Moeright – a woman with Autism who is a rocking roller derby chick and who has also been biohacked – willingly!
Jess is excited to return to the stage in And Where Will You Put the Things You Save? and also loves being a part of ITOWNY because, as she so eloquently states, “ITOWNY gives me the opportunity to do something (acting) that I really love to do, after being told I couldn’t by other places…and gives me the skills to get better at it!” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
