What the Critic's Are Saying
As an ensemble piece, every one of the players and every over the top scene with every move played to please under director Matthew Wiener’s keen eye for comedy, is physical, multi-layered, wonderfully comic, spot on perfect. If you are looking for some fun and you like farce, try this one.
- Carol Davis, critic
The many slamming doors require precise timing for effective comedy, and the troupe is well oiled. The laughs come fast and furious, with the audience grinning at the intermission and the final curtain.
– Brad Auerbach, Entertainment Today
Wackiness reigns high in this madcap comedy about the crazy life of actor’s and those who love them –A must see!
- Art Rocks 247
Dense with witty jokes, clever innuendo and slapstick action, Buffalo delivers constant laughs from start until finish. Met with a full house, the whole audience was in stitches the entire time.
– Cori Wilbur, Vanguard Culture
Director Matthew Wiener gets the best out of this terrific cast, and together they all keep the balls in the air with panache. ‘Moon Over Buffalo’ is a godsend.
– Jean Lowerison, SDGLN
Matthew Wiener who has proven himself to be a bona-fide farcemeister has marshaled a superb ensemble. All have outstanding comic timing and physicality. Downright side-splitting. You could call this one a Funny Valentine to theater.
– Pat Launer, Center Stage, Jazz88
If you’re a fan of farce, there’s no local theater better for the fast-paced comedies than North Coast Repertory Theatre. The Ken Ludwig backstage comedy has all the elements a crowd-pleasing show — a strong cast, a good door-lined set, well-paced direction and the effervescent atmosphere.
– Pam Kragen, The San Diego Union Tribune
The city of Buffalo should send a thank you note to NCRT for performing its hilarious farce production of "Moon Over Buffalo". Where does artistic director Ellenstein keep finding these amazing casts of top farceurs? A must see!
– Jack Lyons, Desert Local News
Affectionate, fast-paced homage to theater and the troopers whose lifeline is the stage. Bravura performances, meticulous timing -- pratfalls, pathos, non-stop laughs and a happy ending.
