Boeing-Boeing To Touch Down On Great White Way

Boeing-Boeing To Touch Down On Great White Way

According to Playbill, Boeing-Boeing has been cleared for take-off on Broadway next spring.

The super hot, nostalgic revival by Matthew Warchus opened to rave reviews in London on February 15 and has been swinging ever since.

The sex farce from Marc Camoletti and Beverley Cross (late husband of Dame Maggie Smith) enjoyed a very healthy London run when it originally performed all the way back in 1961. However, Boeing-Boeing crashed and burned on Broadway after only 23 regular performances back in 1965.

Will the second time be the charm? And more importantly, will any of the London revival's starry cast fly over the Atlantic to reprise their roles? Personally, I'd love to see both Frances de la Tour and Mark Rylance again. But I'd be more than happy to have another go with Elena Roger as well.

Presumably, the Broadway revival won't be performed at the American Airlines Theatre space occupied by the Roundabout Theatre Company -- this despite said airlines' current sponsorship of the London production.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
