How does one man stay secretly engaged to three sexy flight attendant fiancées at the same time? Make sure they work for different international airlines. Make sure to know the flight timetables. And make sure it’s the ’60s.

This fall, the Department of Drama at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM Drama) and the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center proudly present the Tony Award-winning comedy Boeing Boeing, playing weekends Nov. 8-24 at the Carnegie in Covington, Ky. The production is directed by CCM’s new Assistant Professor of Drama Brant Russell in his Greater Cincinnati debut.

The comedy has Bernard engaged to Gloria. And to Gabriella. And to Gretchen. Three beautiful flight attendants kept secret from each other only by Bernard’s precise timetables of flights in and out of Paris.
