Moon Over Buffalo

Playcrafters Theatre Company will present “Moon Over Buffalo," a play by Ken Ludwig, at the Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Bellport Area, 471 Atlantic Ave., Bellport. The show runs two weekends, May 11-13 and 18-20. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00pm and Sundays at 3:00pm.

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 1950’s. 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 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.

Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 Students/Seniors 60+. Visit their website or their Facebook page for more information. You can also call them at 631-748-7863.
