Producers of the hit London revival of the 1962 farce “Boeing-Boeing” have set their sights on a spring Broadway run for the show, posting a casting notice with a March 2008 start date for rehearsals.
Matthew Warchus’ production of “Boeing” has been circling Broadway since it won strong press when it opened on the West End in February. With no theater yet nailed down, final timeline remains tentative.
Comedy by Marc Camoletti and Beverley Cross centers on a Paris-based architect who juggles, with the help of his long-suffering housekeeper, three fiancées simultaneously — all of them airline stewardesses on different schedules. Show had only a short run on Broadway in 1965, but the original London run played over 2000 perfs on the West End.
Rialto incarnation would be produced in Gotham by the same team backing the London production: Sonia Friedman Prods. (“Faith Healer”), Act Prods., Matthew Byam Shaw, Robert Bartner and Bob Boyett (“The History Boys”).
