Over the Moon archiveSet in Buffalo, New York in 1953 and written by the author of smash hit Lend Me a Tenor, Ken Ludwig's screwball comedy played to packed houses at it's New York premiere earlier last year. Show business is renowned for broken marriages. However, George and Charlotte have been together for thirty years and their marriage and stage careers are perfect - until Charlotte discovers that George is having an affair with the juvenile lead in their current production. The ensuing chaos results in Charlotte immediately announcing that she is leaving George for his best friend, George resorting to drink and the juvenile lead resorting to a nervous breakdown...and these events are played out during the evening performance of the play in which they are all appearing. And on a night, when, rumour has it, a big Hollywood director is in town! Initially known as Moon Over Buffalo.
