An aging theater couple with their last shot at stardom sets the stage for the hilarious farce, Moon Over Buffalo, presented by The Yardley Players at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre.
In this play-within-a-play, veteran stage actors George and Charlotte Hay find themselves close to the end of their less than illustrious careers. Appearing at a Buffalo theater, their repertory company is in the midst of performing two stage classics, Cyrano de Bergerac" and Noel Coward's Private Lives." When rumors begin to swirl that the famous Hollywood director, Frank Capra, is coming to Buffalo to audition George and Charlotte as replacement stars for his current film, mix-ups ensue and the merriment begins. Moon Over Buffalo opened on Broadway in 1995 and ran for 309 performances.
