“Moon Over Buffalo”
September 18 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
In this madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo follows George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s who are on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue. However, the Hays receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he 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.
