Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross, opened at the Comedy Theatre 15 Feb 2007, following previews from 3 Feb to terrific notices from the popular press: NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, “Sheer, silly, comic pleasure.” MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, “Loving production, achieves a kind of delirium.” BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, “Refreshingly hilarious.”
It is directed by Matthew Warchus, designed by Rob Howell, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Act Productions, Matthew Byam Shaw and Robert G Bartner.
Bernard , a successful architect living in Paris, thought he could easily cope with his three air hostess fianees. It was all a question of timetables and a reliable, long-suffering housekeeper who reluctantly has the role of romantic air-traffic controller. When old school chum Robert arrives, Bernard relishes the chance to show his wide-eyed friend his first-class operation at work. Unfortunately, schedules change, flights are delayed and a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced: chaos ensues in this hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
Boeing Boeing is currently booking until 20 October 2007.
