At the moment, they are playing Private Lives and Cyrano de Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George's dalliance with a young ing nue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter's clueless fianc and hilarious uncertainty about which play they are actually performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George's body. Performances for the Moon Over Buffalo are November 1, 2, 3, 4, at 7:00 pm., and November 5 at 2:00 pm. For tickets: (740) 681-3353 or online at: https://commerce.cashnet.com/oul-theatre.
