Boeing Boeing is the Tony award wining Best Revival of a Play and Best Performance by a Leading Actor 2008. Bernard (Shaun Micallef), a successful architect living in Paris happily juggling three airhostess fiancées – a German flying with Lufthansa (Sibylla Budd), an Italian in the air with Alitalia (Rachel Gordon) and an American with TWA (Helen Dallimore) who don’t know of each other’s existence. It’s all a question of airline timetables, steered with the assistance of his reliable, long-suffering housekeeper Bertha (Judi Farr), who reluctantly takes on the role of romantic air-traffic controller.
Co – directed by Hannah Chissick, Choreography recreated by Nathan Wright, Scenic Design by Rob Howell, Costume Design by Rob Howell, Lighting recreated by Richard Pacholski and Sound recreated by Michael Waters.
“Boeing Boeing is an exceptional evening out at the theatre… Let the farce begin!”
“Fast-paced production that still appears to have all its engines bolted on”
“This production levitates low burlesque into high comedy”
