This play was so funny and full of action. The characters were interesting to say the least.
The acting was great.
I went with a friend and we both enjoyed it so much.
I would go again to see it and highly recommend it if you like comedy.
“As we were looking at shows for this landmark season we wanted to select works that would really celebrate the ensemble this year,” says Buffalo Theatre Ensemble Artistic Director Connie Canaday Howard. “We also felt comedy and farce should be a part of the season. Moon Over Buffalo just seemed be a perfect “fit” this year, not only because it uses a theater company as its backdrop, or because it has the word ‘Buffalo’ in the title, but because of the extreme physical comedy and the strong pulls of the family in this piece.
"We have always viewed BTE as an artistic family, and our subscribers and audience as our extended family," Howard continues. "This show allows us to give our audience a bit of a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our theater world (though the Hay’s family’s mayhem definitely trumps that we’ve ever actually experienced on any of our productions)."
