The TWI team was one of the lucky groups invited to Repertory Philippine’s press preview of their latest show BOEING BOEING a comedy set in 1960’s Paris, at the dawn of the jet engine airplanes.
Three flight attendants (or what would have been “airhostesses” at the time), three very different flight schedules, and one man, Bernard, who thinks he has it all figured out!
However, the plot quickly thickens with the introduction of the bigger better; you guessed it, Boeing airplanes. Great for vacationers, tragic for Bernard, the new quicker schedules foil his master plan.
At the preview, we were spoiled to three sneak-peak scenes featuring the intimate cast of 6, including Repertory Philippines’ Artistic Director Ms. Baby Barredo (more on her soon to come!) who is making a comeback on stage. She will be alternating with another seasoned actress and founder of REP’s Children’s Theater, Joy Virata.
The few snippets we saw, introduced us to the three charming airhostesses in their uniforms, Gretchen from Lufthansa, Gabriella from Alitalia and Gloria from TWA. All of them charming, all of them beautiful and all of them in love with one man. Each of the scenes was exciting to watch and definitely left us wanting more!
This play is a wonderful, hilarious mess of airlines, affairs and advances and we can’t wait to see how it all comes together!
