Tony Award nominee Denny Dillon will take on the role of omnipresent, no-nonsense maid Berthe in the Hartford Stage production of Marc Camoletti's Tony Award-winning comedy Boeing-Boeing.



Maxwell Williams will stage the romp, which was last seen on Broadway in 2009. Boeing-Boeing will run Jan. 12-Feb. 5, 2012. It will officially open Jan. 18, 2012.

In addition to Dillon (My One and Only, Enchanted April), the cast will include Vince Nappo as Bernard, Ryan Farley as Robert, Claire Brownell (The 39 Steps) as Gretchen, Kelly D. Felthous as Gloria and Kathleen McElfresh (Present Laughter) as Gabriella.

Here's how Hartford Stage describes the farce: "Bernard, a successful architect living in Paris, thinks he can easily juggle his three flight attendant fiancées Gretchen, Gloria and Gabriella. It’s all a question of timing and a little help from his trusted housekeeper Berthe who reluctantly plays romantic air traffic controller. When an old friend Robert arrives and his three fiancées each change their flight schedules, his life hits some unexpected turbulence."

Boeing-Boeing will have scenic design by David M. Barber, costume design by Thomas Charles LeGalley, lighting design by Traci Klainer Polimeni and sound design by Fitz Patton.
