As the sun sets in Paris, American architect and well-traveled playboy Bernard prepares to indulge in yet another wild night of the Swinging ‘60s, but little does he know the turbulence that awaits him. Bernard recently promised sole ownership of his heart to three flight attendants from three airlines, and much to his bafflement, all three show up at his door on the same night. A French farce recently revived on Broadway, Boeing Boeing follows the quartet as doors slam, truths are uncovered, and one man simultaneously navigates the hearts and minds of his three fiancées.
One of the most performed French plays in history, Marc Camoletti’s madcap comedy first his Paris stages in 1960. A film version starring Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis soon followed, and decades later, a 2008 Broadway revival won over audiences, Tony Award voters, and recently landed Dreamliners alike.<p>
The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre
With a history of productions that tend to leave audiences’ heads spinning from laughter, it makes sense that that The Group Repertory Theater was founded in a former laudromat. That was May of 1973, when they were just 12 actors beaming with that “let’s put on a show!” spirit. Although ambitious, they needed an artistic director to steer the ship. Meanwhile, Lonny Chapman was in search of a theater troupe to artistically direct when he wandered into their tiny show. Perhaps it was fate or excess static cling that brought them together, but it was a perfect partnership that quickly led to hit shows, bigger audiences, and even a bigger theater. Now permanently housed at the Lonny Chapman Theatre, the company has ballooned to 80 actors, writers, directors, and technicians who fill the seasons with comedies, dramas, mysteries, and world premieres. Although Lonny passed in 2007, the company has never steered off course of his vision: “First, to entertain, then to illuminate the human condition—and never be boring.”
