Set in Paris in the swingin’ 60’s, Boeing Boeing is a wildly funny and sexy farce that revolves around a day in the life of a self-styled lothario named Bernard, and three beautiful women named Gloria, Gabriella and Gretchen. These women have very different personalities, they come from very different countries (America, Italy and Germany, respectively); but they have at least two things in common: 1. They are all airline hostesses, and 2. They each believe they are Bernard’s one and only fiancée. When Robert (an old friend from college) comes for a visit, Bernard delights in explaining how he has managed to perpetuate his deceit with the help of his reluctantly loyal housekeeper, Berthe; and by relying on the airlines’ schedule to make sure he always keeps “one up, one down and one pending”. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before Murphy’s Law takes over and everything that can go wrong, does goes wrong. Hilariously.
Character Breakdown: All roles open. All ethnicities open. All actors must be comfortable with sexual situations.
Bernard (40-50) – An American bachelor living in Paris. Handsome, self assured, passionate and boyishly charming.
Gloria (18-35) – An American air hostess. Gorgeous, smart, sassy and strong.
Berthe (50-70) –Bernard’s French housekeeper. Not much surprises or impresses her, she’s seen it all. Loyal but put-upon and has no problem speaking her mind.
Robert (40-50) –A friend of Bernard. Everything Bernard isn’t – clumsy, shy and socially awkward. Never the less, there is a sweetness and earnest quality to him that makes him endearing.
Gabriella (18-50) – An Italian air hostess. Sexy, doting, and expressive.
Gretchen (18-50) – A German air hostess. Stunningly beautiful, fierce and animalistic.
