Boeing Boeing Jets off at Candlelight Theatre

Remember when Paris was the city of love, flight attendants were called stewardesses, and the swinging 60s was all about fun-loving good times? The Candlelight Theatre does and is presenting the lively, amusing, furniture-jumping bedroom farce of the swinging 60s Boeing Boeing now through June 24.

It’s 1964, it’s Paris, and Bernard, an American architect playboy, is successfully juggling being engaged to three attractive stewardesses with the help of his faithful housekeeper. When changed schedules have them arriving at his door on the same day, it’s time to fasten your seatbelts — and get ready for the ride of your life.

A rip-roaring bedroom farce written by Marc Camoletti, Boeing Boeing debuted on Broadway in 1965, and the 2008 revival garnered several Tony nominations including Best Featured ActressBest DirectorBest Costume Design and Best Sound Design and won the Tony for Best Revival of a Play and Mark Rylance who played Robert, won for Best Leading Actor.

Hop into your Peugeot convertible and swing by the Candlelight Theatre in Arden for a memorable night of fun!
