Emotional 'Recovery'

"Recovery Mode" is finally coming home.

The comedy, based on events that happened in Buffalo, traveled around the world through the "Cocktails and Cream Puffs" podcast and graced the stages of Sacramento, Calif., earlier this year at the Lambda Players Theater. Saturday, it embarks on a three-week run at the Buffalo United Artists Theater (119 Chippewa St.).

Based on a true story by Matthew Crehan Higgins, who also stars in the production, and directed by Joey Bucheker, "Recovery" was adapted for the stage by Matthew Burlingame at Lambda Players. The story chronicles the unlikely relationship between two very different men and the journey one takes back to himself when that relationship ends.

According to Amber Amey of, the play is an "emotional roller coaster with plenty of familiar laughs."

"Recovery" runs through July 17 with performances at 8 p.m. Saturdays and 7 p.m. Sundays (there is a bonus performance next Friday; none on July 3). Tickets are $23 general, $20 for seniors, $18 for members and $15 for students.
