“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.

Hot Summer Nights’ 2012 Season-Opener, “Boeing-Boeing,” Is a Classic French Farce by Marc Camoletti

Hot Summer Nights and its new larger parent company, Theatre Raleigh, will kick off their ambitious 2012 season with a sizzling professional production of “Boeing-Boeing,” Beverley Cross’ English adaptation of a classic French farce by Marc Camoletti (1923-2003), on June 13-17 and 20-24 in the K.D. & Sara Lynn Kennedy Theatre in back of the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh, NC. “Boeing-Boeing” debuted in Paris on Dec. 10, 1960; and Beverley Cross’ English adaptation premiered in London in 1962 and then ran for seven years in the West End.
