Moon Over Buffalo is a madcap comedy centering on two fading stage stars and their zany antics behind (and in front of!) the curtain.

It’s 1953. Husband and wife team George and Charlotte Hay are starring opposite each other in Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in—where else?—Buffalo, New York.

The original Broadway production of Moon Over Buffalo opened in 1995 and starred comic legends Philip Bosco and Carol Burnett. Ken Ludwig—who also penned the recent Broadway hit, Lend Me A Tenor—has gifted us with this valentine to the Golden Age touring theater troupes of yesteryear.
