Moon Over Buffalo

2016-2017 SEASON



In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

Tom Frascatore, the director, added, "audiences can look forward to a fast paced, pedal-to-the-metal slamming door farce where a top notch cast of comic actors. Drunken swordplay, Noel Coward, Cyrano De Bergerac, Frank Capra and even General George S. Patton all crash together in a symphony of silly.
