Hit Comedy to Play at MCC Theatre Outback

Posted on October 22, 2013 by Sally Mesarosh

Mesa Community College’s Theatre and Film Arts Department is presenting the smash hit, French comic farce, Boeing Boeing, with performances Nov. 22, 23, and Dec. 5, 6, at 7:30 p.m. Matinees are held on Nov. 23 and Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. All shows are at the Theatre Outback, located on the south side of MCC’s Main Campus at Southern and Dobson Roads in Mesa.

Tickets are $10 for General Admission and $7 for Students and Seniors.  On Dec. 5, a sign language interpreter is scheduled. Tickets are available at the door, by calling the MCC Box Office, Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at 480-461-7172; or, online at www.ezticketlive.com/mcc.

Boeing Boeing was written by Marc Camoletti and translated into English by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans. The play centers on Bernard, a playboy American living in Paris who has three fiancées, each an airline hostess for a different international airline. Bernard is fortunate that each one is on a different flight schedule, that is, until Boeing makes a new faster aircraft that delivers all three of his fiancées to his bachelor apartment at the same time. Bernard is not the only one needing oxygen as this comedy goes into a comic tailspin.

Boeing Boeing is the winner of 2008 Tony Award, Best revival of a Play, and was also a hilarious 1965 movie of the same title starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis.
