Boeing Boeing was revived on Broadway in 2008 and became a smash hit and Tony Award winner. This farce, set in Paris in the swinging early ’60s, centers on a self-styled American lothario, Bernard, who has American, Italian and German fiancées. Each is a beautiful airline hostess with frequent “layovers” at his apartment. Bernard explains to his visiting friend, Robert, that he juggles their schedules by always keeping “one up, one down and one pending.” It all works well until unexpected flight changes bring all three fiancées to Paris (and Bernard’s apartment) at the same time, leading to hilarity as Bernard, Robert and Bertha (Bernard’s wisecracking maid) frantically scramble to keep the lovely ladies from discovering each other.
Bernard, self-satisfied American bachelor, mid-20s to 40
An architect by trade, he considers himself a lady’s man and is confident he has the fairer sex completely figured out.
Bertha, Bernard’s long-suffering French housekeeper, mid-30s to 60
Always clad in black, she is very dry, very direct and very unwilling to help in any way—stereotypically French.
Robert, Bernard’s naive friend, mid-20s to 40
An old college chum from Wisconsin, in town for a visit, he’s a fish out of water, unsure of how to act around Bernard’s beautiful women and tangled secrets.
Gabriella, an Italian stewardess, mid-20s to 30s
She is the Italian stereotype, a mix of fiery passion and casual sensuality. Think young Sophia Loren. Accent required.
Gloria, an American stewardess, mid-20s to 30s
Very quirky and modern, she is a flirtatious woman with an upbeat disposition.
Gretchen, a German stewardess, mid-20s to 30s
She’s aggressive and a bit scary, in a sexy-dominatrix way. She might kiss you; she might punch you in the throat. Accent required.
This is a fun, fast, wacky farce. We are seeking actors who are willing to completely give themselves over to the pure silliness that is Boeing Boeing. Please give the accents a shot and make bold choices with the audition materials.
