Boeing, Boeing, a French farce, is the story of Bernard, a successful architect living in Paris, thought he could easily cope with his three air hostess fiancées. It was all a question of timetables and a reliable, long-suffering housekeeper who reluctantly has the role of romantic air-traffic controller. When old school chum Robert arrives, Bernard relishes the chance to show his wide-eyed friend his first-class operation at work. Unfortunately, schedules change, flights are delayed and a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced: chaos ensues in this hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
The Character breakdown is as follows:
ERNARD – A playboy with a spring in his step. 30′s-40′s
ROBERT - Bernard’s best friend. 30′s-40′s. Deadpan personality.
GLORIA – American air hostess. 20′s-30′s. Freewheeling and take charge kind of girl.
GABRIELLA – Italian air hostess. 20′s-30′s. Sentimental and lusty. Italian dialect a plus.
GRETCHEN – German air hostess. 20′s-30′s. Domineering and vulnerable. German dialect a plus.
BERTHE – Bernard’s Housekeeper. 40′s. Wise-cracking and existential.
