Moon Over Buffalo
Directed by John Freeman
May 12 – 21, 2017

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re 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 ingénue, 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 fiancé 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.

Pamela Parker’s play Second Samuel was a popular hit last season with MLT audiences. The themes of love and acceptance continue in its prequel, A Higher Place in Heaven. From her front porch, the plantation owning widow Mrs. Madison and Miss Simpson, her close companion who was born into slavery on the plantation, tell how their sons, Frisky and Ulysses, become best friends in pre-Depression era rural Georgia. And, of course, there are even more delightful surprises in this gem of a play!
