Heights Happenings: March 7- March 14

Friday, March 8, 8 pm: Moon Over Buffalo opens at Upstage Theater
  • “Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a theatrical production? Ever wondered if what happens backstage is half as interesting as what you see out front? Well, wonder no more! UpStage's latest production is the hilarious Ken Ludwig comedy, Moon Over Buffalo.
  • Set in the 1950s, MOB tells the tale of the Hay family; a has-been husband-and-wife acting team and their daughter Roz who left for a "normal" life. Love quadrangles, mistaken identities, slamming doors and hijinks galore ensue. The Broadway premiere of this show lured Carol Burnett out of retirement to play the female lead.”
  • MOB runs Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm through March 23. There will be a special 2pm “Pay what you wish” Sunday matinee on St. Patrick's Day, March 17.
  • Directed by Shawn Havranek and features Marc Abramson, John Carmona, Jaci Jeane, Jennifer Leaton, Carolyn Montgomery, Roger Palomino, Samantha Walker, and Matt Zipko.
