Moon Over Buffalo by Miners Alley Playhouse
One of the Funniest Comedies of the 20th Century! Charlotte and George Hay, an acting couple not exactly the Lunts, are on tour in Buffalo in 1953 with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac“revised, one nostril version” and Noel Coward’s Private Lives. 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.
“Moon Over Buffalo packs more comic genius onto the stage than anything in recent memory!” – USA Today
“Ken Ludwig is one of those rare contemporary playwrights who thinks in terms of old-fashioned knockabout farce, and that’s something to be cherished.” – The New York Times
