Manila, Philippines, January 14, 2013 -- 2012 BroadwayWorld PH Award nominee Giannina Ocampo (Gabriella), Carla Dunareanu (Gretchen), and Jen Bianco (Gloria) join the cast of Repertory Philippines' (Rep) new season opener "Boeing-Boeing," 2008 Tony Award and Drama Desk Award-winning revival of a play, written by French playwright Marc Camelotti, which in turn was translated into English by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans in the early '60s.
In "Boeing-Boeing," Bernard, played by David Bianco ("Next Fall"), juggles three lovely international flight attendants -- Gabriella, Gretchen, and Gloria -- with a carefully drawn out plan involving Bernard's reluctant housekeeper, played by Rep Artistic Director Baby Barredo (Joy Virata is the alternate actor). However, weather delays at airports and the invention of a faster Boeing aircraft would disrupt Bernard's complicated romantic trysts.
"Boeing-Boeing" runs from Friday, January 25 to Sunday, February 17 at Onstage, 2F Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas corner Legazpi St., Makati City.
