USD Theatre Serves Up Delightful Comedy
Director Megan Weidner is in her third and final year of her M.F.A. in theatre with a specialization in direction. Last year she directed the funny and poignant “Circle Mirror Transformation.” This year she chose to direct a pure farce, overflowing with verbal wit and double entendre and lots of physical comedy and slapstick.
“Tackling this fast-paced farce has been a new challenge for myself and the actors,” said Weidner. “Their performance takes a lot of energy and is an incredible feat of comedic timing. The cast and the production team have been working hard to transport the audience into the 1960s and we can’t wait for everyone to see this pop art inspired world.”
Written by Marc Camoletti and translated from the French by Beverley Cross, “Boeing-Boeing” is sure to bring a smile to the audience’s faces.
