Ken Ludwig’s uproarious Moon Over Buffalo follows in the same madcap comedy tradition of his previous hit Lend me a Tenor. The play centers on George and Charlotte Hay, has-been actors who are on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue. Just as they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, resulting in non-stop hilarity. This is the play that lured Carol Burnett back to Broadway after 30 years in 1996.
The production will be directed by Shelley Ackman
