There are so many things about Buffalo that make it so unique, especially all of the history. So much of that history is represented inside the gates of Forest Lawn, where the men and women who built this city now rest. Collectively, their stories are the story of Buffalo. And Forest Lawn is committed to telling these stories. During the holidays, many of them are told in Forest Lawn’s original theatrical production of It WAS a Wonderful Life, running from running November 26th to December 31. In this critically-acclaimed show, many of Forest Lawn’s permanent residents share musical, comical and poignant glimpses of Christmases past, when they enjoyed life on this side of the lawn. It’s a WNY holiday tradition for the entire family! To find out more or to purchase tickets visit their website at or give them a call at 716-885-1600.
