BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) Darwin McPherson from "Buffalo Spree" magazine visited Mike Randall on "Eyewitness News This Morning" about a new comedy on stage at BUA.

Buffalo United Artists proudly presents the world premiere of THE BIRDS ATTACK, a comedy/satire written by and starring Jimmy Janowski, kinda-sorta based on the classic screenplay THE BIRDS by Evan Hunter, (which in turn was ripped off a extremely short story by Daphne du Maurier). The darkly camp reinvention of Hitchcock’s classic will be directed and designed by Todd Warfield. The new play will run August 6-28 at the BUA Theater at 119 Chippewa St. in Buffalo, NY

Socialite and society brat Melanie Daniels (Janowski) has got a ‘thing’ for birds, while in a San Francisco bird shop she meets hunka hunka burning love Mitch Brenner and plots an elaborate practical joke involving a pair of lovebirds, an outboard motor and a duct tape tuck. While in Mitch’s hometown, seaside resort Bodega Bay, we meet a cast of strange locals, Mitch’s domineering mother Lydia and a whole lot of birds bent on bloody revenge. How will Melanie survive? Will the birds ever stop? Will the tuck stay down?
