Boeing-Boeing is coming in for a landing at Hot Summer Nights this June and Broadway's Jessica Bogart is in the pilot seat.
"We are thrilled to have Jessica Bogart directing our first production of 2012. Her extensive knowledge of this show has been a gift! We are so lucky to have her on board with us at HSN," says Artistic Director Lauren Kennedy.
This first class farcical tale by French playwright Marc Camoletti takes flight June 13-24 at the Kennedy Theatre. Boeing-Boeing tells the story of an architect living in Paris who has been successfully juggling three flight attendant fiancees. All the while, his housekeeper reluctantly plays the romantic air-traffic controller as they fly in and out of his swank bachelor pad. But when an old school pal visits, things get rather turbulent. Schedules change, flights are delayed and chaos ensues in this hilarious whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
Under Bogart's direction, and in association with Wojcik | Seay Casting, the show stars Lauren Barone (Gabriella), Bryan T. Donovan* (Robert), Lilly Nelson (Gretchen), Ben Nordstrom* (Bernard), Mike Raab (Berthe) and Cameron Wade (Gloria).
The show's creative team includes Chris Bernier (Technical Director/Scenic and Lighting Design), LeGrande Smith (Costumes), Will Mikes (Sound Design), Rick Young (Props), Tiffany Owle (Production Stage Manager), Adam Twiss (Associate Artistic Director), Hilary Russo (Publicity & Media Relations Director), Michele Weathers (General Manager), Alex Tobey (Assistant Director), Liz Ray (ASM), Bree Branker and Jackson Cooper (General Management Assistants), Aaron Broadhurst (TD Intern), Katie Bottomley (Costumes Intern), DJ Curtis, Lydia Leggett and Zach Teague (Run/Build Crew), Daniel Marhelko and Haley Richardson (Build Crew).
Boeing-Boeing takes the Kennedy Theater stage Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 3PM. Tickets range from $20-$24 and can be ordered through ovationtix.com or by visiting the HSN website.
