This grand Rococo theater opened in 1926 and was originally called Shea's Buffalo. It was designed by the renowned Chicago architectural firm of Rapp and Rapp, with an interior by Tiffany. The enormous crystal chandeliers and most of the other decorations have survived. Even the Mighty Wurlitzer organ is still in action, thanks to the efforts of the Friends of Buffalo Theater, who banded together to save Shea's and its furnishings in the 1970s. Nowadays, 3700-seat Shea's is a top place to see touring Broadway musicals.
