Herndon, VA / Washington, D.C. –  Thursday night, just a few exits away from baggage claim at Washington’s Dulles Airport, the comedy Boeing Boeing arrived. The riotous laughter continues at NextStop Theatre Company’s 114 seat black box theatre in Herndon through April 30th.

The non-stop comedy Boeing Boeing is a side-splitting farce that enjoyed a Tony Award-winning revival in 2008, featuring Christine Baranski, Bradley Whitford, Mark Rylance, and Gina Gershon. The play takes place in the 1960’s and features the story of Bernard, an American bachelor living in Paris, the three gorgeous “air hostesses” engaged to him (without knowing about each other,) and the chaotic day when the release of a faster Boeing jet brings all three ladies into town simultaneously, ruining all of Bernard’s best laid plans.

NextStop Producing Artistic Director, Evan Hoffmann, whose most recent directorial work in “Catch Me If You Can” is up for 4 Helen Hayes Awards, is at the helm directing Boeing Boeing.

“There are so many serious and intense things going on in the world right now… but for this moment in time, I thought it might help us all to take a moment to laugh. Boeing Boeing is great for that!” said Hoffmann.

This cast features a mix of returning NextStop veterans, like Matthew Baughman and Emily Levey. As well as some spectacular new faces, like Alan Naylor (who is a Helen Hayes Award-winner), Jenny Girardi, Suzy Alden, and Karen Novack.

The production features welcomes the return of Elizabeth Jenkins McFadden as Scenic Designer, and a production team including Sarah Tundermann (Lighting Designer), Kristina Martin (Costume Designer), Reid May (Sound Designer), Jack Golden (Technical Director), Jessica Dubish (Assistant Director), Britney Mongold (Scenic Charge Artist), and Laura Moody (Stage Manager)
