Boeing Boeing @ Fort Findlay Playhouse
Apr 27 @ 8:00 pm

The Fort Findlay Playhouse will present the zany comedy “Boeing Boeing” on April 20-23 and April 27-29.

Evening performances start promptly at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees will start at 5 p.m. Unsold seats will be available on a cash-only basis at the door 30 minutes before curtain time.

The French farce adapted for the American stage was written by Marc Camoletti and received a Tony Award for Best Revival in 2008. It was also a popular movie starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis in 1965.

Set in the swinging sixties, it tells the story of self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard (m James Foust) who, like having a girl in every port, has a fiancee in three different cities.
Balancing the three lovely ladies takes some skill, but Bernard pulls it off for a while as all three are flight attendants with different layover times. But with one unexpected switch in schedules and the faster new Boeing jet, Gabrielle (Megan Meyer), Gloria (Laurie Dye) and Gretchen (Casey Wurm) all end up in Bernard’s apartment on the same day, with Berthe the housekeeper (Sarah Olesky) to greet them there.

Bernard’s old school chum Robert (Wes Taylor) tries to help, but with Robert forgetting which lie he told to which girl, catastrophe and comedy ensue.

Tickets go on sale to the public Monday for $12 each. They can be purchased through www.fortfindlayplayhouse.org, by phone at 567-525-3636 or in person at the Playhouse box office, 300 W. Sandusky St. Reservations must be paid at the time of ordering tickets. Phone reservations can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express and can be sent by email to print at home or display on a mobile device.

The show is produced in association with Samuel French.

Gavin Creel: Coming Home to You @ Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
May 1 @ 7:00 pm

Tony Award-nominated actor and singer Gavin Creel will be the special guest at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ Fundraising Reception at 9 p.m. Monday, May 1, at Dietsch Brothers, 400 W. Main Cross St.

The event follows the sold-out 7 p.m. “Gavin Creel: Coming Home to You” performance at the Marathon Center, 200 W. Main Cross St.

The Marathon Center said the reception is likely to be a low-key event where attendees have the opportunity to meet Creel, whose stage credits include “The Book of Mormon,” “Hair,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and “Hello, Dolly!”

Posters will also be sold during the performance to benefit the Marathon Center, with some limited-edition posters signed by Creel.

It is not a requirement to see the show to purchase reception tickets, but a reception ticket is not a substitute for a performance ticket, which needed to be purchased separately.

Reception tickets cost $100 and can be purchased at the Marathon Center’s box office, which is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and they will also be sold when the building opens for the show. They are also available by calling the box office at 419-423-2787 or ordering online at www.marathoncenterarts.org.

If you choose to have a reception ticket emailed to you before the show, have it printed out by 5 p.m. May 1. Will call will not be available.

All proceeds benefit the Marathon Center Endowment Fund.

For more information, visit the Marathon Center website or www.gavincreel.com.
