M&T Bank was founded in 1856 in Western New York as “Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company.” The company opened its first branch on August 29 of that year at 2 East Swan Street in Buffalo and has been headquartered in the Queen City ever since.
M&T has been a longtime supporter and partner of Shea’s and is our exclusive sponsor for our Broadway Series. M&T has taken an active role in our communities for over 160 years and their commitment to living up to the values and truly “understanding what’s important,” have helped make them one of the best performing regional banks in the nation today.
Their partnership is vital in the work we do. It continues to help restore and maintain Shea’s Buffalo Theatre for present and future generations to enjoy as a working historic theatre providing a wide variety of live performing arts experiences for our patrons and innovative and effective educational experiences fostering an appreciation of live theatre by area youth.
As title sponsor of our Broadway Series, M&T Bank continues to help restore and maintain Shea’s Buffalo Theatre for present and future generations.
