New Review: Boeing Boeing

This was posted a few days ago on the New York Press' website, and is in the issue that comes out today.

Here's the obligatory tease:

One perk of theater criticism is you’re often given the script for a play that’s been off the scene. That certainly applies to Marc Camoletti’s Boeing Boeing, which ran on Broadway for 19 days in 1965 and fell off the radar faster than you can say Bermuda Triangle. True, the sex-farce-loving Brits kept it going-going for over seven years during the swinging ’60s, and the Guinness Book of World Records, in the early ’90s, proclaimed it the most-performed French play on earth. (Camoletti, who was French, died in 2003.) But in America, the play has long been going-going-gone.
