Tuesday To-Do: 'Boeing Boeing'

Posted By on Tue, Nov 16, 2010 at 5:09 AM

"BOEING BOEING"
6 p.m., Murry's Dinner Playhouse. $22-$30.

As Werner Trieschmann pointed out in last week's issue, Little Rock has lately been jam-packed with amazing theater with "Hamlet" at The Rep and "Wicked" at Robinson. Admittedly, these are two plays that will probably never be brought to life on the Murry's Dinner Playhouse stage, but isn't that one of the reasons why the low-lit, tucked-away building that houses Murry's is such an endearing Little Rock institution? This week, Murry's debuts its latest play, "Boeing Boeing," the classic farce about a successful architect juggling three fiancees, all international flight attendants. It's been adapted into a number of films (including a Jerry Lewis/Tony Curtis classic), was recently revived on Broadway and, for decades, has been considered France's largest contribution to comedic theater. The play runs through New Year's Eve.
