Civic’s ‘Moon over Buffalo’ helps us laugh our troubles away
Sometimes it’s good to lay your troubles (and your brain) aside and just enjoy being entertained.
That’s the way to approach “Moon over Buffalo,” the Ken Ludwig farce that opened Friday at Rochester Civic Theatre.
Directed by Michael Stebbins, and with an all-professional cast, “Moon over Buffalo” comes with no change-the-world message, nor does it appeal to our better angels. In fact, it encourages us to laugh at the foibles of our fellow man — especially when, as in the case of George Hay in this play — he tries too hard to be too important.
