    EXTRA PERFORMANCES GO ON SALE FOR

    Matthew Warchus’ hilarious and critically acclaimed production of Boeing-Boeing, currently playing to packed houses at the Comedy Theatre, is to extend booking until 20 October 2007. Roger Allam, Mark Rylance, Daisy Beaumont and Michelle Gomez are expected to continue in their roles until 23 June. Any recasting will be announced shortly.

    Translated by Beverley Cross from Mark Camoletti’s original, Matthew Warchus’ production of Boeing-Boeing opened at the Comedy Theatre on15 February. Boeing-Boeing is designed by Rob Howell, with lighting by Hugh Vanstone, original music by Claire van Kampen and sound by Simon Baker. The curtain call is devised by Bruno Tonioli. Boeing-Boeing is produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Act Productions, Matthew Byam Shaw, Robert G Bartner and Bob Boyett.

    Bernard, a successful architect living in Paris, thought he could easily cope with his three air hostess fiancées. It was all a question of timetables and a reliable, long-suffering housekeeper who reluctantly has the role of romantic air-traffic controller. When old school chum Robert arrives, Bernard relishes the chance to show his wide-eyed friend his first-class operation at work. Unfortunately, schedules change, flights are delayed and a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced: chaos ensues in this hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.

    Boeing-Boeing, which originally opened in London in the mid-sixties, held the world record for the longest running comedy in the West End, playing over 2000 performances before transferring to Broadway.
