Final weekend for Bergen County Players' 'Boeing Boeing'

The Bergen County Players (BCP) of Oradell will conclude its 80th mainstage season with the final three performances of Marc Camoletti's Tony Award-winning acclaimed non-stop farce Boeing Boeing, directed by Alyson Cohn. The final three shows will take place at the Little Firehouse Theatre on Kinderkamack Road in Oradell on May 31 and June 1 at 8:00 PM and on June 2nd at 2:00 PM. There will be no performances on Memorial Day weekend. Tickets can be purchased online at, by calling 201-261-4200 or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road, Oradell during regular box office hours.

Set in the swinging '60s, Boeing Boeing is the hilarious tale of Bernard (Larry Kadish of New Milford), a high-flying lothario who deftly juggles a trio of flight attendant fiancĂ©es, each a beautiful airline hostess with frequent "layovers." They are the Italian hostess Gabriella (Shiva Kiani of Newark), the German hostess Gretchen (Sky Spiegel of Morristown), and the American hostess Gloria (Allyson Stevenson of Westwood). With a complex system based upon their flight schedules and some assistance from his disapproving housekeeper (Paula  O'Brien of Park Ridge), Bernard's carefully constructed timetable runs like clockwork until a new, faster Boeing jet goes into service.

Bernard's supersonic lifestyle hits turbulence when his friend Robert (Dale Monroe of Morristown) comes to stay and the unexpected schedule changes bring all three women to his apartment at the same time. Bernard's intricate ruse unravels in one wild, door-slamming night of comic mayhem.
