“Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s BOEING BOEING Soars With Talent”

Matthew Perta with loved Boeing Boeing!

“The Chamber Theatre’s production of Marc Camoletti’s Boeing Boeing soars with hilarious hijinks performed by a talented cast under the direction of Michael Cotey.

With its heavy dose of physical comedy, Boeing Boeing tests an actor’s agility. Brian J. Gill, as swinging bachelor Bernard and Ryan Schabach as his naïve buddy Robert, brilliantly rise to the challenge. As the trio of airline hostesses parading through Bernard’s swanky Paris digs, Anne Walaszek as the American Gloria, Amber Smith as the Italian Gabriella and Samantha Sostarich as German Gretchen nail their characters beautifully. They also fill out beautifully the brightly colored, form-fitting 1960s-era stewardess outfits created by Eleanor Cotey.

But snaring the crown of scene-stealer is Marcella Kearns as Bernard’s housekeeper, the devoted – and sex starved – Berthe. Her facial expressions and interactions with the main characters are spot-on hilarious. Kearns deservedly earned the loudest applause from the audience at curtain call.”
