Rhea Perlman to Make West End Debut in Boeing-Boeing

News   Rhea Perlman to Make West End Debut in Boeing-Boeing Rhea Perlman will make her West End debut in the hit revival of Mark Cammoletti's comedy Boeing-Boeing June 25.

Perlman is best known for her television work — most famously as the feisty waitress Carla in "Cheers." In Boeing-Boeing she will play a long-suffering housekeeper and join a cast that currently includes Evita star Elena Roger.

Four time Emmy-winning actress Perlman first came to the public's attention while playing opposite husband Danny DeVito in another hit sitcom, "Taxi."

Her theatre credits in the U.S. include The Exonerated, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife and The Last Night in Ballyhoo.

The revival of Marc Camoletti's farce is helmed by Lord of the Rings director Matthew Warchuss and opened at the West End's Comedy Theatre on Feb. 15 following previews that began Feb. 3.

The madcap plot centers on Paris-based playboy Bernard (Adrian Dunbar), who has three air hostess fiancées. When his school friend Robert (Neil STuke) arrives, Bernard relishes the chance to show his friend his first class operation at work. But Bernard hadn't reckoned on a change of airline schedules.

Boeing-Boeing originally opened in London in the mid-sixties and held the world record for the longest-running comedy in the West End, playing over 2,000 performances before transferring to Broadway.

In 1965 John Rich directed the film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis.
