Laugh with Your Love This Valentine's Season in "Boeing Boeing"

Onstage, Greenbelt 1 Theater's Entrance

Repertory Philippines opens their 2013 season with the comedy "Boeing Boeing" which is a story about the love adventures of an architect living in Paris.

and brings one to feel you're in Paris. <3 p="">

During our 45th monthsary last week, my fiance and I watched the press preview of "Boeing Boeing" at Onstage, Greenbelt 1. Since he has been busy with work lately, I really wanted him to watch it with me to relax.

The story begins with Bernard Whitford (played by David Bianco) talking to his maid Bertha (played by Baby Barredo & Joy Virata as alternate) about the schedules of his three fiancees who are all flight attendants.

It was really amazing how each of Bernard's fiancee has a different nationality so the meals should match their nationalities and also Bertha must be mindful of the photos on display inside the room. A crazy change arises when Robert (played by Topper Fabregas) comes in to visit Bernard and stays to see all the three fiancees.

I find the lines of Robert and Bertha quite brilliant with all the hiding and witty exchange that definitely made my tummy ache from all the laughing.

When Bernard was discussing how easy it is for him to juggle all the three fiancees and how easy it is for him to remember their name because it all starts with a G - Gabriella, the Italian Flight Attendant; Gloria, the American Flight Attendant and Gretchen, the German Flight Attendant.
I find the popping of the foot real cute!

Carla Dunareanu as Gretchen
She's half German in real life
 so she can really speak English with German accent which is perfect for her role.

Bernard tells Robert that given their flight schedule, they'll never meet each other and know that they have the same fiance. A storm came and trouble arises which made all three stuck with him all together in his apartment! The show has literally become a laugh trip when Bernard, Robert and Bertha look for ways on how to help Bernard escape from the situation.

All throughout the show, my fiance and I were laughing our hearts out while holding hands and looking at each other. Even though the show is about polygamy, the way my fiance looks at me has assured me that I'm his one and only despite teasing me that he should've looked for a flight attendant girlfriend. *blush! :)*
