A Laughing Matter: Moon Over Buffalo
By Christiana Keyes
Two-time Tony Award–winning playwright Ken Ludwig has been amusing audiences all over the world for more than 20 years. His plays have been staged in some of the best-known theaters from the West End in London to Broadway in New York and just about everywhere in between. Theater buffs in the Naples area will be treated to one of Ludwig’s zany comedies, Moon Over Buffalo, premiering February 13 at Gulfshore Playhouse.
This isn’t the first of Ludwig’s plays to hit the stage at Gulfshore. Last year his comedy The Game’s Afoot broke box office records there. Ludwig currently serves on the local professional theater’s advisory board. “What Gulfshore brings to its community is unique and wonderful,” he says. “What I saw when I was in Naples was absolutely top-notch actors and very thoughtful and intelligent productions. Founder Kristen Coury has set a really high standard for the work.” High praise, coming from the author whose works have won countless accolades and have starred actors such as Alec Baldwin, Carol Burnett, Lynn Redgrave, and Mickey Rooney, to name a few.
