The Non-Stop Comedy Hit Boeing Boeing
June 12-28, 2015

Boeing Boeing will be heating up the Wade James Theatre this summer!

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play, Boeing Boeing is a 1960's farce that features self-styled bachelor Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent "layovers". He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard's apartment at the same time.

When asked if Boeing Boeing, written in the mid-1960’s by French playwright Marc Camoletti, is relatable to audiences now, director Ted Jaquith responds,

“in most farces there’s an unbelievable series of coincidences and in this play the coincidences are believable … for the most part. 
Society in the 1960s became extremely polarized. Nixon was a popular president and it was also the ‘summer of love.’ 
While this play is set during the same time, the comedy in this show spoke to everyone, and it still does. We could set it in the year 2515 on the moon and it would still be funny.”

Featuring the talent of Jordan Fermstad, Jennifer Makenas, Sara Schweid, Veronica Tuttell, Greg LoProto and Cindy Giese-French, Boeing Boeing is the final Mainstage production of this season for Edmonds Driftwood Players (don’t miss the 6th Annual Festival of Shorts in July!).

This cast masterfully captures the physical nuance of the classic farce as they each immerse themselves in characters that are funny, sharp, sexy, silly and completely enjoyable. A fantastic way to start anyone’s summer vacation!
