Tucson, AZ – September 17, 2013

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, Boeing Boeing is a hilarious French farce. Bernard, a Parisian architect, has devised a foolproof plan for keeping his love life exciting. He has three bedrooms and three different fiancées who all work for three different airlines. What could go wrong? Everything! Bernard and his best friend are left desperately seeking an emergency exit as all the fiancées come in for a landing at the same time. One of France’s most popular plays, this 1960’s romp is just the ticket to kick off our season.

If you’d like to learn more about how the show poster was created with UA student Alyssa Alger (not a Theatre student) as our model, contact Lisa Pierce. A.R.T. always creates its own posters – from concept to finished product.
