In 1953, George and Charlotte Hay have taken their run-down touring company to Buffalo, New York. But on-stage harmony is compromised when George performs an off-stage infidelity, goes on a grief-stricken drinking binge, and to complicate matters, Frank Capra is headed to town to scout the couple for his next big movie. As a result, the Hay family–including mother in law Ethel, practical daughter Rosalind, and dashing actor Paul, must work overtime to get sloppy-drunk George into his Cyrano hat and nose–or is it his Elyot Chase smoking jacket? With pratfalls, slamming doors, and backstage shenanigans, Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-paced, screwball comedy in the old tradition, a valentine to the stage and the larger-than-life personalities that inhabit the world of the theatre.
