ToDo ToDay: Boeing-Boeing and Grasshopper Burgers
If the play your low-budget theater company is producing directly mentions a multinational corporation in its title, why not ask that corporation to underwrite your production? That’s what Arlington’s No Rules Theatre did to fund its current show, Boeing-Boeing, which is—you got it—presented by the Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer. The French farce follows the antics of Bernard, an architect living in Paris, and his relationships with three different stewardesses to whom he is engaged. None of the women has any idea about the others’ existence, but when a fast new plane alters Bernard’s perfectly timed arrangement, that’s bound to change. Read more >>> The play runs June 4–June 29 at No Rules Theatre Co. at Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington. $15–$50. (571) 527-2159. norulestheatre.org. (Caroline Jones)
