BOEING BOEING Comes to Long Beach Playhouse Mainstage, 11/9-12/7
The wildly popular French farce by Marc Camoletti, Boeing Boeing is coming to the Mainstage of the Long Beach Playhouse this winter to warm your hearts with laughter, sexy stewardesses, and silly fun!
Directed by Playhouse stalwart, James Rice, this comedy features some politically incorrect themes that are a sign of the times for this French comedy set in the 60s.
Synopsis: It's the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard's perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.
