Written by French playwright Marc Camoletti in 1960, Boeing-Boeing is a hilarious bedroom farce that follows the exploits of a well-to-do French architect, Bernard, who is secretly engaged to three flight attendants — an American, an Italian and a German. With the help of his disapproving housekeeper, Bernard develops an intricate system to juggle his fiancées’ flight schedules. But his amorous plans hit some turbulence when Boeing introduces state-of-the-art, faster jets, and the women’s schedules start to overlap. Expect lots of slammed doors and narrow misses. The play was immortalized in a 1965 film adaptation starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis, and a recent Broadway revival brought Boeing-Boeing to the attention of today’s American audiences — it won a Tony Award for Best Play Revival 2008. WaterTower Theatre, 15650 Addison Road in Addison, presents Boeing-Boeing starting at 7:30 p.m. Monday, with additional performances at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through June 17.
