From the mind of Ken Ludwig (writer of Lend Me a Tenor) comes the classic Broadway comedy Moon Over Buffalo, a play that centers on the husband and wife acting team, George and Charlotte Hay -two fading stars of the 1950’s. In an attempt to keep their careers afloat, the couple is producing two plays simultaneously: Noel Coward’s Private Lives and Cyrano de Bergerac. Suddenly, George receives word that Hollywood director Frank Capra may be coming to see a matinee performance, giving them one last chance at fame! That is, of course, if they can remember what play they are doing. In short, everything that could go wrong does in this side-splitting, backstage farce full of romance, swordplay, prosthetic noses, and plenty of doors.
