Photo Coverage: Plane Crazy Opens at NYMF

Plane Crazy opened at the NYMF Festival on Saturday Night, September 17th and BroadwayWorld was there! With book, music and lyrics by Suzy Conn, Plane Crazy is directed by Jamibeth Margolis and features choreography by Randy Slovacek, with musical direction by Seth Weinstein.

Plane Crazy is set against the backdrop and glamour of the swinging '60s jet age -- a time When Stews Were Sexy and the World Was Sexist. Plane Crazy follows the adventures of two young Venus Airlines stews, Faith Hope and Janet Jones, as they learn about love and life in the high-flying airline business, circa 1965. Faith (played by Allison Spratt) is a naïve, virginal Mid-western gal looking for Mr. Right; Janet (played by Sarah Mugavero) is a randy, cynical New Yorker who is just looking for a good time. Through their friendship, they both find the inner strength to overcome the obstacles and sexism encountered in the air and on the ground.

Plane Crazy is playing at the Beckett Theatre/ Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street). Visit online at www.planecrazythemusical.com to meet the Plane Crazy team.
