Synopsis: 

Joined by Bradley Whitford and Christine Baranski, Mark Rylance reprises his Olivier-nominated performance as Robert in this swinging, 60's-flavored farce. Bernard is an English playboy in Paris with three girlfriends, who are all flight attendants. With the help of his housekeeper, Berthe, Bernard has organized a schedule to allow his three loves to each spend a night at his apartment whenever they are in Paris. This all works perfectly until the new double-speed Super Boeing arrives and changes the flight schedules.

    Up, Up and Away (and Watch Those Swinging Doors)

    BEN BRANTLEY

    May 5, 2008: Boeing Boeing, a creaky French comedy that has been given the makeover of the season by the director Matthew Warchus, has no earthly right to be as funny as it is. I mean, think about it.

    The three women being juggled in Boeing-Boeing by an American Lothario in Paris are referred to not as flight attendants but by their more quaint denomination, air hostesses. That in itself indicates we're in a time warp. But PC police preparing to press charges of gender objectification should back off. These are no demure trolley dollies; they're bewitching sex amazons who rule even in chaos. It could have been a tired dollop of '60s camp in the wrong hands, but director Matthew Warchus and his sparkling cast fine-tune this fluffy French farce with clockwork precision, and the result is a riot.

    As for Boeing-Boeing itself, which crash-landed last night at the Longacre Theatre, this always feeble piece now seems like a clever European plot for Airbus-Airbus.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Boeing-Boeing

    Imagine going into a kitchen, gathering together no ingredients whatsoever and from that vacuum producing a perfect soufflé. In a manner of speaking, that's what director Matthew Warchus and a cast of six expert comic actors have achieved with Boeing-Boeing, Marc Camoletti's boulevard farce that stuck around for only 23 performances when it was first done here in 1965. This time, the side-splitting treat should keep laughter-seeking audiences besides themselves with glee for at least 230 performances -- and maybe even 2,300.
