MAINSTAGE THEATRE


ARTWORK BY RICHARD HILLIARD
“… soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy.”
The New York Times
2008 Tony Award Winner, Best Revival of a Play

Fasten your seat belts as Boeing Boeing lands at the Forbes Center! In this 1960s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage, playboy Bernard juggles the arrivals and departures of his three flight attendant fiancées. Tracking their airlines’ timetables and scheduling non-convergent “layovers,” he keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and his apartment at the same time. Bernard is thrust into the role of air traffic controller—in his own apartment. The result is a hilarious journey through near misses as he attempts to keep his love life from being grounded. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.

Contains adult content. Boeing Boeing is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
