Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival, this 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”.  He keeps “one up, one down and one  pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time.  “This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy.  Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin, Lloyd, (this) may be earthy, but is seldom earthbound.” – The New York Times.  By Marc Camoletti; adapted by Beverly Cross.  Directed by David Johnson

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. Music and lyrics by William Finn; book by Rachel Sheinkin; conceived by Rebecca Feldman; additional material by Jay Reiss; directed by Susanna Rinehart; music direction by Richard Masters.
