Boeing-Boeing is a classic farce written by French playwright Marc Camoletti. The English language adaptation was first staged in London in 1962 running for a total of seven years. A 2007 revival was again a smash and took off on Broadway in 2008. The show, despite being French, is a classic British, door-slamming, eye-winking farce. Bernard, an architect in Paris, juggles three fiancés, American, Italian and German. The girls are flight attendants, and Bernard plans their arrivals and departures to the minute courtesy of their flight schedules. But a combination of the faster Boeing 707 jet and bad weather wreaks havoc with Bernard’s amorous juggling. Fasten your seat belt for a rip-roaring ride that will take you up, up and away.
This production is recommended for adults and children ages twelve and older.
Boeing-Boeing won a 2008 Tony Award for Best Play Revival and Drama Desk Award for Best Play
Revival. The show received four additional Tony nominations.
