Missed communications, mistaken identities, secrets, and lies all collide with hilarious results in the classic Ken Ludwig farce, “Moon Over Buffalo,” directed by Michael Thomas-Visgar, presented by the Morgan-Wixson Theatre January 20-February 11, 2018.
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 five other 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 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.
This beloved wacky backstage comedy by the author of "Lend me a Tenor" brought Carol Burnett out of retirement to play Charlotte on Broadway. The New York Post called it "one of the most hysterical things ever put onstage."
