Boeing Boeing

Boeing, Boeing
Produced by Montgomery Playhouse
It’s the 1960s and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms. A riotous farce that all boils down to juggling timetables and a reliable maid who never forgets to change the photographs.

Brighton Beach Memoirs

Brighton Beach Memoirs
Produced by Sandy Spring Theatre Group
Here is part one of Neil Simon’s autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states ‘if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here.’

May 8 - 24, 2015

Many may know that she saved the oil painting of George Washington as the British were about to burn the White House during the War of 1812. Few may be aware that she was the First Lady for two presidents, or how she influenced Washington society. Bayewitz treats the audience to Dolley’s life story with humor, warmth and a unique view of American history. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
