Art preview: "Boeing Boeing" makes Otterbein's summer theater program even hotter

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

Leave it to a Frenchman to write a sexy farce about a playboy with a certain je ne sais pas whose juggling of three relationships with three spirited, unknowing flight attendants gets thwarted.

Leave it to the French to make such a play the most performed in the world (1991, Guinness Book of World Records).

And, finally, leave it to the students of Otterbein's summer theater program to make this summer even hotter.

Written by playwright Marc Camoletti and first performed in 1962, "Boeing Boeing" follows the charming Bernard whose luck runs out when his friend Robert arrives for a visit and the airlines change their flight schedules and Bernard's lady loves become suspicious of one another. C'est la vie! Tickets are $22.
