WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Marc Camoletti's classic sixties comedy of errors, Boeing-Boeing is directed by Matthew Warchus in a slightly re-written version for this new production. Bernard, a successful architect living in Paris, thought he could easily cope with his three air hostess fiancées. 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, a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced and chaos ensues in a hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking. Boeing-Boeing, which originally opened in London in the mid-sixties, held the world record for the longest running comedy in the West End, playing over 2000 performances before transferring to Broadway. In 1965 John Rich directed the award-winning feature film starring Tony Curtis as Bernard, Jerry Lewis as Robert and Thelma Ritter as Bertha.
