"Moon Over Buffalo" a Hilarious Play

|Okay, this is a shameless plug for the show I'm doing, "Moon Over Buffalo". I don't even know really if I'm allowed to do this, am I? |
Anyway, it's the funniest show I've ever been a part of. I'm playing George Hay the leader of a theatrical troupe touring the country in 1953. He and his wife Charlotte and the rest of the troupe are in Buffalo, and when Ronald Colman breaks his leg, fate has given George one more shot at a starring role in The Scarlet Pimpernel movie epic that Frank Capra himself is directing. Mr. Capra is on his way to Buffalo to see their matinee performance. Unfortunately, Charlotte has become fed up with George after learning of his affair with an actress in the troupe, and she doesn't even believe him when he tells her Capra is coming. George thus enters into a drunken stupor of despair. When Charlotte discovers that Capra is coming, she returns, but now everyone must deal with George's sloppy drunkeness. Will he be sober enough to perform when the time comes? Will Capra see them perform Cyrano de Bergerac, or Private Lives or a bizarre combination of the two plays due to a series of hilarious misunderstandings?
So, here's a quiz about the play that I hope will provide some interest in the show. I'll feature some funny lines from the show and some trivia.
And here's info on the show itself which opened last night:
