BOEING-BOEING

Bernard, an American architect living in Paris, thinks he has the perfect set-up. He has proposed marriage to three beautiful young women of different nationalities: Italian, German and American. Each one is an airline hostess, and thanks to their different stopover times in Paris, Bernard is able to entertain them separately in his at without them knowing of each other’s existence. His plan is perfect until the inevitable happens. Due to stormy weather and delays, ight schedules are suddenly changed and all three women show up the same day on Bernard’s doorstep. Result: panic and chaos. Luckily, Bernard’s housekeeper and an old friend are there to help him hide the three women in separate bedrooms. But how long will this work? Originally a long-running hit in London in the late Sixties, Boeing- Boeing received Broadway’s prestigious Tony Award in 2008 for Best Revival of a Play.
