Thursday, March 16, 2017 10:00 AM
CMU’s Department of Theatre Arts will conclude its 2016-17 Main Stage season with the comedy,Boeing-Boeing, April 13-15 in the Moss Performing Arts Center Robinson Theatre. The play is a 1960s French farce which was translated for the English-speaking stage and will be directed by theatre faculty veteran Jeanine Howe.
It’s the swinging sixties, and bachelor Bernard has a flat in Paris and three beautiful fiancées, all of whom are airline hostesses, none of whom know the others exist. Such is the riotous situation that sets off a chain of hilarious events when all three women are suddenly and unexpectedly in town at the same time. Bernard can’t remember which lies to tell whom and catastrophe runs rampant. The play is PG-13 for sexual innuendo.
Tickets for Boeing-Boeing are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors, faculty/staff and $7 for students and are available online at coloradomesa.edu/mosstickets or by calling the box office at 970.248.1604.
CMU's Tomlinson Library will also host a table read of a section of the play on April 12 at 7pm during which participants may choose to take on a role to read aloud. The reading will be followed by a discussion of the play and light refreshments. The library is also showing a display of 1960s airline design and artifacts.
