Moon over Buffalo is a comic play written by Ken Ludwig. The play is set in Buffalo, New York with the backdrop of 1953. The play was first screened in New York in 1995, and ran for 309 consecutive screenings.

The comedy focuses on George and Charlotte Hay, fading actors from the theaters. They are on the edge of a split-up, with Charlotte seeking Hollywood fame and George turning alcoholic. Charlotte receives word that one of the famous Hollywood directors is coming to see their matinee, and he is looking for actors. Hoping to land a Hollywood role, Charlotte and her daughter set out to find and convince George to do the matinee with them. The confusion then begins. With couple of more characters, the writer creates a comedy extravaganza, through the case of mistaken identity. The event is one of the funniest shows from the Broadway. The comedy is engaging and covers the entire audience.
