Moon Over Buffalo - Tuesday Show Cancelled

In the nature of life imitates art and just as George and Charlotte Hay struggle with "whatever can go wrong with a show will go wrong" in Ken Ludwig's Moon Over Buffalo, we at CAT Theater have had a similar experience. One of our performers has had an injury which has caused us to cancel our Tuesday night show.

If you have tickets for that show already please email the theater at and let us know when you would like to reschedule.
