Moon Over Buffalo

If you're looking for a light evening of laughter, why not check out Metro Theatre's current production of Ken Ludwig's Moon Over Buffalo.

This screwball comedy has everything from physical theatrics and mistaken identities to mis-communications and slapstick. Act One started out a bit slow, but the real pay off is after intermission when things go completely haywire! The story focuses on the backstage antics of a theatre troupe that stars two aging actors trying to stay in the limelight - oh and did I mention they're also married to one another? Throw in an illicit love affair, a daughter torn between two loves, and a cranky old mother-in-law and you have a recipe for hilarity!

Sue Sparlin shines as the grumpy grandma, while Devon Busswood as her bright-eyed granddaughter has a stage presence that demands you pay attention. It's a comedy of errors, but the biggest error of all would be if you missed out on this show.

Moon Over Buffalo plays now until November 30th at the Metro Theatre (1370 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver).
