Waterbury Festival Playhouse Presents MOON OVER BUFFALO
The Waterbury Festival Playhouse, central Vermont's professional theater company, presents "Moon Over Buffalo" by Ken Ludwig. In the raucous comedy tradition of past Waterbury Festival Playhouse productions, Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. They're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in a repertory theatre in Buffalo, New York. Charlotte has grandiose dreams of becoming a Hollywood film star, but George sees live theater as superior to film. When Charlotte discovers George's dalliance with a young ingénue in their cast, their relationship teeters on the brink. But fate intervenes and gives them one more shot at starring roles - Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee! If he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Twilight of the Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, exacerbated by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiancé, mistaken identities and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're actually performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George's body.
