Moon Over Buffalo at St. Bart's -- Feb. 8-18, 2007  | Open: 02/08/07 Close: 02/18/07
This riotous backstage farce opened on Broadway in 1995. It's 1953, and Buffalo is the latest stop for the fading theatrical couple George and Charlotte Hay. Touring with a repertory consisting of threadbare versions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Noel Coward's Private Lives, they are hoping for one last grasp at glory. George receives a phone call from legendary screen director, Frank Capra, who needs replacements for the stars of his current film, The Scarlett Pimpernel, and he wants to see one of the shows and consider George and Charlotte for the roles. Moon piles on madcap misunderstandings as Charlotte's deaf mother, a love triangle, and an ingénue with a secret add to the comic complications.

Rumors  | Open: 02/17/05 Close: 02/27/05
A hilarious farce, the plot of Rumors builds to an event creating a domino effect of one disaster after another.

Four couples gather in a Manhattan suburb to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of their best friends, only to discover that their host, the deputy mayor of New York, has accidentally shot himself in the earlobe. A missing wife, a missing cook, a damaged car, whiplash, back spasms and rumors galore add to the comic mayhem as circumstances get progressively worse when nobody can remember who has been told what about whom.

By Act II, everyone knows what has happened, but how do they explain it all to the police, who will arrive at any minute.
