July 14, 2007 Play - Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig. Moon Over Buffalo is the story of an acting couple, George and Charlotte Hay, performing in Buffalo in 1953. The comedy by Ken Ludwig was made popular by Carol Burnett’s return to Broadway after 30 years and her Tony Award nomination. In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo centers on the Hays, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re performing in two plays in Buffalo, New York while on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue. They receive word that they might have one last shot at stardom when Frank Capra plans to come to Buffalo to see their matinee. If likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately, everything that could go wrong does go wrong for for George and Charlotte. A visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing would normally end fading careers. But in a twist of fate, not all is lost for the ambitious couple whose lives are filled with drama, both personally and professionally.
