The semi-clueless Hollander family is accused of spying for taking photos behind the iron curtain, and they are stuck in a run down American embassy with the police on their tails an an inept ambassador's son in charge! It's a blast from the 1960's past in "Don't Drink the Water"in the Black Box Theatre, 44 Franklin Street in Uptown Martinsville.
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 1950s. 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 he 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.
We will be casting four men and four women for this production, additional information is available on our website, www.twcp.net.
