Hilberry Theatre to Present MOON OVER BUFFALO, Begin. 2/21
On February 21, 2014, the Hilberry Theatre's 51st season continues with Moon Over Buffalo, Ken Ludwig's riotously funny backstage farce. The opening night performance also coincides with the 2014-15 Hilberry Theatre Season Announcement. Tickets for Moon Over Buffalo range from $12-$30 and are available by calling the Hilberry Theatre Box Office at 313- 577-2972, online at Hilberry.com, or by visiting the box office at 4743 Cass Avenue on the corner of Hancock Street.
Set in Buffalo, NY in 1953, the play centers around fading actors George and Charlotte Hay as they struggle to reignite the flame of fame, attempting to save their touring repertory theatre company...and their marriage! This hilariously funny Green Room comedy piles hysterical misunderstandings on top of madcap misadventures. George and Charlotte have just one last chance at fame, if only they can figure out which show they are performing!
Premiering on Broadway in 1995, the original production heralded Carol Burnett's return to the Great White Way after a 30-year absence. Playwright Ken Ludwig is known for his notoriously clever dialogue and frequent use of theatrically specific allusions and situations. Lend Me a Tenor, Ludwig's best known play, has been translated into over 15 languages and has been performed worldwide. Featuring countless jokes, one-liners and swordfights, Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-paced and highly physical comedy that is certain to evoke uproarious laugher from audiences of all ages.
