"Plane Crazy is set against the backdrop and glamour of the swinging '60s jet age -- the intersection between the dawn of transatlantic airline travel, the introduction of the Pill, the genesis of the modern Feminist Movement, and the Golden Age of Advertising...it follows the adventures of two young Venus Airlines stewardesses, Faith Hope and Janet Jones, as they learn about love and life in the high-flying airline business, circa 1965. Faith is a naïve, virginal Mid-western gal looking for Mr. Right; Janet 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," according to production notes.
Plane Crazy's design team includes Jason Courson (sets), Elizabeth Payne (costumes), Jesse Belsky (lighting) and Tony Angelini (sound).
