We're getting into putting together Boeing-Boeing in earnest! Rehearsals have been fun and funny, and the show is shaping up to be high-energy and hilarious. I play one of three stewardesses in the 60s who are all dating Bernard, a Parisian bachelor, but don't ever run into each other because they all fly out at different times. Until, of course, the planes start getting faster and faster and he must keep them from finding out about one another. I am Gabriella, the Italian, and I have been working away at my silly Italian accent. I'm lucky this is a comedy because I sound pretty absurd, but hopefully it will add to the humor. Also, it was amusing when I was practicing my lines with Bernie, who kept laughing at odd moments, until I realized I had never before picked up on the fact that in real life I was dating a "Bernardo" as well!

Today myself and the extremely talented Laura Loy, who plays Gretchen the German stewardess, went to the Garment District to see what we could find in the way of period costuming for us girls. We had considered renting the uniforms, but we were a little underwhelmed by their less-adorable-than-we'd-hoped quality, so we figured we might as well just buy stuff that was both cuter and cheaper to acquire. We turned out to be very lucky! We found two fabulous mod dresses, one in acid red and one in mustard yellow for the TWA and Luftansa flight attendants respectively, and a light blue period suit for me. It was a pant suit, unfortunately, and I needed a skirt, but I decided to see if I couldn't hack off the legs and make one out of them. It turned out VERY short, as it could only be as long as the crotch of the pants, but that's pretty much the look we wanted. I also want to take the jacket in so the fit is a little closer. I may also be temporarily darkening my hair so that I look, according to the director, "more Italian." I am half-Italian, as a matter of fact, but I will concede my WASPy side shows through more in my appearance. Regardless, I intend to be very cute.

It's shaping up to be a fun and hilarious show. If you would like to come out and see us, we're going up October 17th-20th in the Black Box at the First Church of Boston at 60 Marlborough Street, Boston, MA. Tickets can be bought at www.benttheater.com or www.zptheater.com, and if you use the code zeropoint, you can get a discount on Friday through Sunday tickets.
