Called “the funniest play to hit Broadway in ages” (Wall Street Journal), and “pure pleasure and unconditional bliss” (New York Times), Boeing Boeing makes its Liverpool debut, four nights only, from Oct. 18 to 21.
“The work on this production began back in June. The cast met often over the summer reviewing their lines, and we’ve been rehearsing regularly since September,” says Richard Comeau, the play’s director.
“It’s been a huge commitment from the cast and production crew.”
The Tony award-winning revival comedy, Boeing Boeing introduces audiences to Bernard, a successful American architect living in a posh Paris apartment, who has been nimbly juggling three fiancées who are all airhostesses. It’s been easy for Bernard (so far), with good timing and a bit of assistance from his housekeeper who reluctantly plays romantic air-traffic controller. But, this supersonic lifestyle hits turbulence when his old college friend, Robert, visits and each of his three fiancées change their flight schedule.
The Winds of Change cast includes Grant Webber as Bernard, Chris Ball as his friend, Robert, and Sarah Webber, as Berthe, his housekeeper. Susan Lane, Annette Burke and Amy Grant are the airhostesses.
Showtime is 8 p.m. each night. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students and are available through the Astor Theatre box office or online at http://www.astortheatre.ns.ca/detail.php?date=2012-10-18&caldate=2012-10-01.
