“Boeing, Boeing” is a 1960s French farce that won the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. Translated for the English-speaking stage by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans, it features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German and American fiances, each a beautiful airline stewardess with frequent layovers in Paris. He keeps one up, one down and one pending until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time.
Under the direction of Mike Burnett, assistant director of University Theatre, the student cast is composed of Collyn Glaspie as Bernard, Kala Young as American stewardess Gloria, Arianna Gonzalez as Italian stewardess Gabriella, Sabrina Idom as German stewardess Gretchen, Mason Tabor as Robert and Angela Cavada as Bertha.
The student production staff and crew include Cheyenne Mickler, stage manager; Jade Ellis, assistant stage manager; Logan Burgess, sound designer/operator; Nick Ellis, prop master; Hayley McDowell, master carpenter; Eli Rodriguez, lighting designer/light board operator; Conner Burnett, master electrician; Kelli McLaurin, wardrobe supervisor; Stephanie Davis, wardrobe crew/dresser; and Brit Beggs, house manager.
ASU alum Ross Fleming is the guest scenic designer, and fellow alumni Matt and Teresa Smith are guest technical directors. Chasity Neutze is ASU’s resident costumer and costume designer.
