We are thrilled to report that panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized featured actor (and fourth year drama major) Shaun Sutton for his work in the CCM/Carnegie co-production Boeing Boeing!

Boeing Boeing is a comic farce featuring the antics of Bernard, a playboy who has juggled his romances with three beautiful flight attendants until a change in their schedules brings them to his flat all on the same night. Panelists particularly praised Shaun Sutton’s “impressive” portrayal of Robert, Bernard’s friend: “His use of facial expressions and body really helped sell the physical comedy of the role.” You can learn more about Sutton here.

CCM and the Carnegie in Stitches Over Tony Award-Winning Comedy ‘Boeing Boeing’

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. But when Boeing invents a faster engine, Bernard’s three foxy fiancées converge on his flat at the same time, igniting a mad dash of hidden women and nick-of-time maneuvers as Bernard tries desperately to save his perfect bachelor fantasy.

Throw in a surprise visit by Bernard’s amorous old school chum, Robert, and the reluctant housekeeper Berthe, and the New York Times writes that Boeing Boeing “soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy.”
