Moon Over Buffalo features two aging 1950s Broadway stars who unexpectedly have a shot at a new Frank Capra movie. Capra is coming to see George and Charlotte Hay's performance at a repertory in Buffalo. Unfortunately, things go haywire after an actor gets drunk, another gets pregnant, the repertory shows get changed around, and the performance itself gets chaotic.
Ken Ludwig created Moon Over Buffalo, which Anny Alexander directed. The cast features Michael McCollum as George and Grace Poganski as Charlotte.
Moon Over Buffalo did make its way to Broadway, running for more than 300 performances at the Martin Beck Theatre in New York City. Carol Burnett originated the role of Charlotte Hay.
Following Moon Over Buffalo, the Little Colonel Playhouse will present Last Train to Nibroc. Auditions will go on Sept. 25 and 26 at the playhouse, and the show itself will run in November. More information on Little Colonel Playhouse's season can be found in this article.
