Madison, NJ – September 24, 2009 – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ, will present Marc Camoletti’s play “Boeing Boeing” on the Dreyfuss Theater stage in October. This student production, directed by Stephen Hollis, is sponsored by FDU’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts.
First produced in Paris in 1965, “Boeing Boeing” was recently revived with great success in London and New York. Bernard, an American businessman living in Paris, is juggling love affairs with three air hostesses, thanks to a highly efficient housekeeper with a keen eye on their flight schedules. One fateful weekend, the inevitable happens and the ensuing collisions result in a hilarious evening of breathtaking escapades. Director Stephen Hollis relates that The New York Times described “Boeing Boeing” as “a creaky French comedy that has no earthly right to be as funny as it is.”
Evening performances will be held at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7 - Saturday, October 10, and Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17; and a 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinee on October 11. General admission is $10: $5 for students/seniors. Tickets may be reserved by calling 973-443-8644, press 4, or purchased at the door.
A special matinee for high school classes will be held on Friday, October 9 at 11 a.m. Arrangements for high school classes to attend may be made by calling Stephen Hollis, at 973-443-8467.
