Play was a 2007 hit on the West End

Gina Gershon and Mary McCormack are coming in for a landing on Broadway this spring, playing flight attendants in the upcoming revival of Marc Camoletti’s 1960s farce “Boeing-Boeing.”

Both Gershon (“Bound,” “Showgirls”) and McCormack (“The West Wing”) appeared on the Rialto as Sally Bowles during the six-year run of the Roundabout’s revival of “Cabaret,” Gershon in 2001 and McCormack in 1999.

One more flight attendant remains to be cast in the play, about an architect who juggles romantic relationships with three stewardesses on different travel schedules.

Helmed by Matthew Warchus, “Boeing-Boeing” was a 2007 hit on the West End, where it played for about a year and closed in January.

In the Gotham incarnation, Bradley Whitford plays the architect with Christine Baranski as his housekeeper. Brit thesp Mark Rylance, playing a visiting friend of the architect, reprises the role he played in London.

“Boeing-Boeing” opens at the Longacre Theater May 4.
