comedy by Ken Ludwig
The hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s, who are on tour with a repertory consisting of 'Cyrano de Bergerac' “revised, one nostril version" and Noel Coward's 'Private Lives'. They receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee.
Directed by Ron Payne
