All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
Playhouse 2000 engrosses the Hill Country in the performing arts with yearlong Broadway classics and homespun comedies that stir denizens' love of the stage. The troupe paints the lavish Cailloux Theater in broad strokes of laughter with its production of Moon Over Buffalo, a zany and lighthearted farce from Ken Ludwig, the Tony-winning author of hit plays such as Lend Me a Tenor and Crazy for You. Moon Over Buffalo wrenches laughs like clown-car mechanics with a tale of married thespians and former Broadway stars, George and Charlotte Hay, who teeter on obsolescence and estrangement. When they learn that movie director Frank Capra will be watching their small-town matinee, the play erupts in old-fashioned knockabout high jinks as the couple clamors to make it to the silver screen. Packed full of comic disasters, running gags, and vaudevillian splendor, Moon Over Buffalo garners contagious guffaws in ways that only live theater or filibuster outtakes on C-SPAN can achieve.
