A special kind of scenery magic has arrived at Buffalo's Kavinoky Theatre in the form of LED screens . The new screens were purchased through a grant for $47,000 and according to Managing Director Loraine O'Donnell, the new technology will be "a game changer for the Kavinoky."

The screens can be used in sections or all in one piece and can be programed to project anything. For their current production of "Mamma Mia!" the screens can easily project a beach scene and nightmare sequence as well as a more than a dozen other backgrounds. 

Loraine says that "this is the same kind of technology that you have seen at rock concerts and these screens have been used in theatres in Europe for more than a decade".

O'Donnell who also appears in the production says that the screens will not detract from the performance, but will enhance the production which runs through January 28th. More information available at thetheatre's website
