“It’s Paris, it’s the jet age, he’s young and in love – three times over!”
Winner of the 2008 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play, “Boeing Boeing” is a 1960s farce that features self-styled bachelor Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time.
This production features the talent of Jordan Fermstad, Jennifer Makenas, Sara Schweid, Veronica Tuttell, Greg LoProto and Cindy Giese-French.
“Boeing Boeing” is the final Mainstage production of this season for Edmonds Driftwood Players (don’t miss the 6th Annual Festival of Shorts in July!). This cast masterfully captures the physical nuance of the classic farce as they each immerse themselves in characters that are funny, sharp, sexy, silly and completely enjoyable. A fantastic way to start anyone’s summer vacation!
