“Boeing-Boeing,” the inaugural production of Hot Summer Nights and its newly formed larger parent company, Theatre Raleigh, is a real humdinger, based on Beverley Cross and Francis Evans’ revised English-language script for the critically acclaimed 2008 Broadway revival of Marc Camoletti’s 1960 French sex farce, which is set during the Swinging Sixties in a plush bachelor pad near Paris-Orly Airport.
