7:00 PM Stage: Boeing Boeing It's the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous flight attendants all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard's perfect life experiences some turbulence when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three flight attendants are in town simultaneously, timid Robert forgets which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms. Fasten your seat belts, we are in for a bumpy ride!
