“Moon Over Buffalo,” a hilarious farce by Ken Ludwig, will be performed at Brookfield Theatre for the Arts, Friday, March 13, through Saturday, March 28. The play shares a comedic story set in 1953.

The theater described the show in a news release, saying, families are complicated, especially for Rosalind Hay, whose parents, George and Charlotte, run a failing repertory theater in Buffalo, N.Y. Despite their lack of success, her parents have no intention of throwing in the towel.

“...George and Charlotte still dream of stardom and past glory while Rosalind just wants to live a normal life,” the theater says. “Now engaged to be married, she returns home to introduce her fiancé to her parents, only to end up in the middle of a maelstrom, complete with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and onstage mishaps.”

When the show opened on Broadway in 1995, it marked the return, after a 30-year absence, of Carol Burnett to the Broadway stage. Burnett, who played Charlotte Hay, was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play.

Brookfield’s production is directed by Jane Farnol, who directed last year’s “Macbeth.” The show stars Bob Lussier, Vicki Sosbe, Dandy Barrett, Brianna Bowman, Sean Latasa, Thomas Samuels, Christopher Bird, and Julie-Anne Brand.

A free preview for seniors citizens will be presented Thursday, March 12, at 8 p.m.
