MOON OVER BUFFALO
Metropolis Performing Arts Centre
7/9-8/16/2015
Moon Over Buffalo By Ken Ludwig Get an inside look at life backstage in the 50’s in this madcap comedy. George and Charlotte Hay’s careers as big time stars are fading as the family performs in Buffalo, New York - a far cry from the bright lights of Broadway. But when a big time producer wants to see Charlotte for a movie role, can they get their act together in time to make a good impression? “Moon Over Buffalo is hilarious! Ludwig stuffs his play with comic invention, running gags and neat sense of absurdity. An evening of farcical delight,” raves the New York Post. Preview Performances: July 9-12, 2015 Tickets: $30 Regular Run: July 16 - August 16, 2015 Tickets: $38 Talkbacks: July 16 & 17 www.metropolisarts.com Box Office: 847-577-2121
