BWW TV: BOEING-BOEING at Hartford Stage - Performance Highlights!

‚Äč

Hartford Stage is currently presenting Boeing-Boeing, the high-flying Tony Award-winning comedy through February 12, 2012. The show is directed by Hartford Stage resident director Maxwell Williams. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you performance highlights!

In Boeing-Boeing, Bernard, a successful architect living in Paris, thinks he can easily juggle his three flight attendant fiancées Gretchen, Gloria and Gabriella. It's all a question of timing and a little help from his trusted housekeeper Berthe who reluctantly plays romantic air traffic controller. When an old friend Robert arrives and his three fiancées each change their flight schedules, his life hits some unexpected turbulence

Broadway and television actress Denny Dillon returns to Hartford Stage in the role of Berthe. Making their Hartford Stage debuts are Claire Brownell (Broadway: The 39 Steps) as Gretchen, Ryan Farley (DC's Shakespeare Theatre Company) as Robert, Kelly D. Felthous (NSMT's Legally Blonde) as Gloria, and Kathleen McElfresh (Roundabout's Present Laughter) as Gabriella. Vince Nappo (directed by Darko Tresnjak in Theatre for a New Audience's The Merchant of Venice) recently seen in the Hartford Stage Brand:NEW Festival's Days of Rage will play Bernard.

Written in French by Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverly Cross for its 1962 London premiere, Boeing, Boeing held a world record for the longest-running comedy in the West End, playing over 2,000 performances. John Rich directed the film version starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Boeing-Boeing became the most performed French play in the world according to Guinness World Records. Boeing-Boeing received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a play.

The production features scenic design by David M. Barber, costume design by Thomas Charles LeGalley, lighting design by Traci Klainer Polimeni, sound design by Fitz Patton.
