“Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s ‘Boeing Boeing’ a funny farce that stays right on schedule”

Matthew Reddin with The Wisconsin Gazette gives Boeing Boeing a thumbs up!

“Perhaps the most striking thing about Cotey’s direction of the play is that it never feels rushed, even as the door-slamming picks up in the second act. Rather than accelerating story beats to indicate a heightening level of chaos and panic, Bernard, Robert and Berthe’s interactions with the rotating flight attendants stretch on and on, every second increasing the chance that another door will pop open. It’s a reliance on suspense over slapstick — not that there’s no slapstick; this is a farce, after all — that makes the production seem smart, not silly.”
