Boeing-Boeing by Marc Camoletti

Boeing-Boeing, a 1960s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage, features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancees, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers.” He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernards apartment at the same time.

“This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy. Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, [this] may be earthy, but its seldom earthbound.” The New York Times
