Kentwood Players presents
Moon Over Buffalo
by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Gail Bernardi
Jul 21 - Aug 12, 2023
MOON OVER BUFFALO is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
MOON OVER BUFFALO centers on Charlotte and George Hay who are on tour in Buffalo in 1953 with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac (the “revised one-nostril version”) and Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Charlotte has grandiose dreams of becoming a Hollywood film star, while George, on the other hand, is quite satisfied as a stage actor and sees live theater as being superior to film. But when they receive word that they might have one last shot at real stardom since Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, with the couple’s marriage on the rocks due to drinking and cheating getting in their way, how will they be able to take advantage of this golden opportunity? Hilarity
ensues with numerous mistaken identities, much slapstick humor, and sexual innuendo filling their back-and-forth backstage banter!
