THE DEPARTMENT OF DRAMA PRESENTS: BOEING-BOEING

IRVINE, Calif. (March 16, 2015) – UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama presents Marc Camoletti’s classic farce Boeing-Boeing. A madcap comedy listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most performed French play throughout the world. Translated into English by Beverly Cross and directed by Chancellor’s Professor of Acting Eli Simon, Boeing-Boeing is a stylistically lush and comically rich romp of a tale.  At the center is swingin’ bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris and relationships with three gorgeous stewardesses, all unaware of his duplicity. When the new and speedier Boeing jets deliver all three women to him simultaneously, however, the jig is up and hilarity ensues.
