'Moon Over Buffalo' a comedic farce

LONG BEACH - "Moon Over Buffalo," a fast-paced farce that opened on Broadway in 1995, opened at the Long Beach Playhouse last weekend.The show is set in 1953 and offers "a zany look at life and love in the theater." Chaos ensues when famed director Frank Capra notifies the leads of a jaded touring company that he might attend a performance in Buffalo, and they realize that they might finally have a chance at Hollywood fame after years of disappointment. The comedy is filled with twists, turns, collisions, mistaken identities, miscommunications and slapstick antics. It stars Gregory Cohen and Donna Lee Taylor as George and Charlotte Hay. "Moon Over Buffalo" opened Jan. 22. Tickets are $25 for opening night and include a champagne reception with the cast following the show. Regular ticket prices are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors and $12 for students. The play runs until March 5. Tickets are available at www.lbplayhouse.org or by calling (562) 494-1014.
