SWEET
This play is worth getting up off the couch for, with enough outrageous fun and high wire energy to carry the play through to its madcap ending, with the cast chewing up the scenery all along the way. A must see!
Annamarie Donkin – Topanga Messenger

It is Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo and it tickles the funny bone to the nth degree.

This wonderful cast exudes energy and flair under the astute direction by Drina Durazo. Every moment of this play, its characters and the actors who perform them, offer exceptional entertainment.
Carol Kaufman Segal – Stagehappenings

SWEET
Despite a few missed opportunities for laughs, Durazo has directed skillfully this Moon Over Buffalo and her company gets the audience chuckling quite regularly. Good endeavor!

    I don’t get it. Were all the reviewers friends of the cast & crew? I could not leave the theatre fast enough, reeling from the mostly bad acting. The younger actors had no feel for the 1950′s genre or the classic 50′s speech rhythms the script was screaming out for; the costume designer put the leading lady in flats and no one wore flats in 1953 (it was always a wedge or small heel) – it changes her posture and stride and makes her frumpy instead of elegant. Further, how could the director encourage the leading lady to beat her husband with Variety? And most of the women were squealing – did the director not hear this? Women in 1950s film and stage modulated their voices. Please people – next time you do a period piece, especially one that centers around actors in the 1950s – DO YOUR RESEARCH. I’m appalled. It was bad college theatre at best.
