‘Boeing Boeing’ lands at Newport Playhouse

Newport Playhouse and Cabaret Restaurant continues their 2019 Season of comedies with Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti, directed by Daniel Lee White.

This lightning-fast French comedy centers on a bachelor juggling three stewardess girlfriends  – until all three ladies land on his doorstep at the same time. Bachelor Bernard (played on alternate dates by Austin Venditelli and Joshua Fogerty) has everything in perfect order in his flat in Paris. With the aid of his housekeeper Berthe (Leslie Zelle), he juggles juggling incoming flight schedules and visits from his three flight attendants fiancees – Gloria (Kathleen Kent), Gabriella (Annette LaBonté) and Gretchen (Genevra Stewart) – and no one is aware of the other’s existence. But Bernard’s ride gets a bit bumpy when his unsuspecting friend Robert (James R. Walsh) comes to stay, and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupts his careful planning. Soon all three flight attendants are in the city simultaneously and Bernard must loop his friend Robert into the ruse, which becomes more and more complicated as each lady arrives.
