‘Boeing-Boeing’ to end run

Broadway revival to shutter Jan. 4

The Broadway revival of “Boeing-Boeing” will shutter Jan. 4 after a run of just over nine months.

The 1960s farce by Marco Camoletti logged a number of strong weeks at the box office and has grossed about $12.2 million since it began perfs April 19. In September the production recouped its $2.65 million capitalization, according to producers.

Beyond Gotham, a 45-week national tour of “Boeing-Boeing” is in the works to kick off next fall.

A Rialto transfer of a 2007 London hit, “Boeing” picked up a Tony last spring for play revival along with another for thesp Mark Rylance.

Contracts for the current cast (including Rylance and Christine Baranski) expire Jan. 4. Producer Sonia Friedman said the producing team decided to close then rather than face the annual sales slowdown of January and February — months that may seem colder than usual this year, given the economic downturn.

Friedman produces “Boeing” along with Bob Boyett, Act Prods., Matthew Byam Shaw, Robert G. Bartner, the Weinstein Co., Susan Gallin/Mary Lu Roffe, Broadway Across America, Tulchin/Jenkins/DSM and the Araca Group.
