Amana – Fasten your seat belts because The Old Creamery Theatre is taking off with its fall farce, Boeing Boeing, on the Main Stage beginning today.
It promises to be a bumpy ride as Bernard, a successful architect in Paris, juggles three flight attendant girlfriends. Bernard’s elaborate planning to keep the women apart is no match for the newer, faster Boeing jet that lands all three women in town at the same time. You’ll howl at the elaborate measures Bernard, his housekeeper – a sassy and reluctant accomplice - and his innocent friend Robert take to try and keep Bernard’s three little secrets from bumping into one other.
Written by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans, Boeing Boeing won a 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. The cast consists of Jessica Bradish of Des Moines, John D. Smitherman of Philadelphia, Marquetta Senters of South Amana, Sean McCall of Marengo, Deborah Kennedy of East Amana and Jackie McCall of Marengo. Directed by James Fleming, Boeing Boeing runs through Oct. 16 and is rated Theatre PG-13.
