12 Jul 2012
The Dorset Theatre Festival presents the French farce Boeing-Boeing by Marc Camoletti beginning July 12, prior to an official opening July 13, at the Dorset Playhouse in Vermont.
Directed by Jenn Thompson (co-artistic director of Off-Broadway's TACT/The Actors Company Theatre), the limited engagement continues through July 28 and features Liv Rooth (Broadway's Venus and Fur), David Christopher Wells (Broadway's The Coast of Utopia, The Rivals), Finnerty Steeves (Off-Broadway's recent Brighton Beach Memoirs), Alec Beard (Off-Broadway's Lost in Yonkers), Kate Middleton (Off-Broadway's Pratfalls) and Amelia White (Dorset's Noises Off).
According to DTF, "This classic French farce tracks the zany story of an American businessman living in Paris while juggling affairs with three stewardesses. Once the schedule he has arranged goes askew upon the arrival of Boeing's 'fastest jet in the world,' chaos ensues."
Other members of the creative team include set designer Kevin Judge, costume designer Emily Pepper, lighting designer Michael Giannitti and sound designer Jane Shaw.
The Dorset Theatre Festival plays Dorset Playhouse, 104 Cheney Road, in Dorset, VT. For more information and tickets, call (802) 867-2223 or visit DorsetTheatreFestival.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
