Award-winning play comes to Oklahoma City
Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma will be performing “Boeing Boeing,” the 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Play Revival, from today to April 9.
OU musical theatre professor Lyn Cramer plays Bertha, the French housekeeper and cook to the main character, Bernard.
“She’s a bitter curmudgeon, trying to help keep chaos at bay in Bernard’s apartment which currently doubles as a revolving door for his three fiancés,” she said.
Cramer performed in 2008’s “Urinetown” and has choreographed and directed several Lyric Theatre performances, including “42nd Street,” “Swing,” Smokey Joe’s Café” and “Singin’ In the Rain.”
“I love working with my friends and former students,” Cramer said. “The Oklahoma Theatre community is so wonderfully talented and the camaraderie is unequaled. Add to that terrific talent from New York City, great local creative teams and you have the ingredients for a fantastic night of theatre.”
Former OU musical theatre dance professor Lexi Windsor plays Greta, one of Bernard’s three fiancés.
Made famous by Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis on film, “Boeing Boeing” tells the comedic story of Bernard, an architect living in Paris. While he juggles three flight attendant fiancés, his housekeeper is forced to play along and direct the action as the girls come in and out of his bachelor pad.
When a new Boeing jet is introduced onto the scene, things get bumpy as schedules are changed, flights are delayed and chaos abounds.
Single tickets for “Boeing Boeing” are $40. Performance times are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday afternoon.
