Moon Over Buffalo

MOON OVER BUFFALO centers on two fading stars of the 1950s whose troupe are playing “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “Private Lives” in rep in Buffalo, New York. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by the husband’s dalliance with a young ingenue, they receive word that they might have one last shot at stardom. Frank Capra is coming to town to see their show, and if he likes what he sees, he may cast them in his remake of “The Scarlet Pimpernel.” Of course, everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Come see what the Boston Herald called “a love letter to live theater.”

Director: John Prescod
