Tonight, I was fortunate to see my third fantastic production of Ken Ludwig’s, MOON OVER BUFFALO. I first saw this hilarious comedy in New York, starring the incomparable, Carol Burnette in the mid-1990’s. The second production was at Northern Kentucky University in the mid-1990’s.
My third production was by another class act company, The Centerville High School Theatre program.
The minute you walk into the lobby there is an air of professionalism, and this professionalism carries one into the auditorium, through the production, and back to the lobby when the cast greets the audience, not in costume, but in dress attire.
This cast is incredible with the timing in this very physical comedy, and I found myself howling throughout. Junior Justin Matthews’ incredible energy is amazing, and brings hints of Matthew Broderick to his character, making George Hay all the more endearing. Justin was surrounded by equally strong, talented cast mates that made this one heck of a solid show.
I am returning to the final production, Saturday evening, with some friends.
Thank you, CHS Theatre!
