    The Lakeway Players present Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig

    Moon Over Buffalo is the story of an acting couple (David Cummings and Lauren Linn as George and Charlotte Hay) who are on tour in Buffalo, New York, in 1953 with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac and Noël Coward’s Private Lives.  Directed by Linda Dobbs (Ghost of a Chance), this backstage farce by the author of Lend Me a Tenor (Ken Ludwig) brought Carol Burnett back to Broadway and also starred Philip Bosco as her megalomaniac, often drunk husband and leading man. Fate has given these thespians one more shot at starring roles in The Scarlet Pimpernel epic and director Frank Capra himself is en route to Buffalo to catch their matinee performance.

     

    Moon Over Buffalo is one of those plays that shows the scenes behind the onstage scenes. There are really three plays intertwined with each other. And, being a farce, you have all the craziness that includes doors opening and closing, people hiding in closets, half-dressed actors, near misses in running into people who are hiding, mistaken identities and mass confusion. Timing is everything...and as the show goes on the timing gets better and better.  The Player’s spring show also stars returning favorites Alle Bird (Rosalind Hay), Annette Brown (Ethel), and Clarence Goins (as Richard).  Lakeway new comers Hope Carew (Eileen), and Mike Magor (Paul) also grace our stage, while we’re especially pleased to have Rhett O’Hara (as Howard) join us fresh off the same production and role in Round Rock at the Sam Bass Theater!
