Who doesn't love old movies?!?!?!?   
There's easily a dozen cable stations raking in viewership by riding the coattails of old films and TV shows.  

If you've never seen "BOEING Boeing" starring Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis, you don't know what you're missing. Between the physical antics of the comic stars and the witty, wise-cracking ways of Thelma Ritter, who plays Bertha, Bernard's housekeeper - it's a hilarious romp through both a great story, and the social norms of 60+ year's ago. 
But no one should miss the stage version opening at Hedgerow Theatre this month! 
In the left corner, Thelma Ritter helps Tony Curtis hide
one of his many fiancees... :)  And in the foreground is a
rehearsal scene from Hedgerow's stage play.

If you like physical comedy and have a somewhat bawdy sense of humor you'll love the non-stop mayhem and magic of this outstanding production.

For Boeing newbies, this is a French farce* adapted for the English-speaking stage. It features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has 3 fiancees, all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers.”  Things get more than a little out of hand when schedule changes result in overlapping arrivals at his door.

Bernard does his best to keep “one up, one down and one pending” until time...runs...out...(yikes!)

“This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy. 

Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, {this} may be earthy, but it’s seldom earthbound.” 
– The New York Times.
