Notes From the Director Boeing-Boeing was first staged in London’s West End in 1962 and ran for seven years. It was revised and brought to Broadway in 2008 where it won the Tony for Best Revival of a Play and Best Leading Actor. I love farce; watching it, acting in it and directing it. My very first show with Charleston Stage was as an actor in Moon Over Buffalo, and I have directed Noises Off and The 39 Steps since then. Maybe I appreciate that farce is one of the forms of theatre that can never quite be duplicated on film. Sure there are slapstick comedies, but getting it right after multiple takes is nothing like making it work live every time. In rehearsals for this kind of comedy, props are tracked and followed as carefully as actors. A flight bag’s placement on stage may be as crucial as where its owner ends up. Even choosing furniture is different. Our sofa and chair had to be suitable for hiding behind, snuggling on and falling into. Our production staff agreed it was best to just design and build all the furniture. Lucky me! I think they were just afraid to take me in a furniture store to test stuff. I also love the rapid fire pace of farce. From speaking to movement, it is really like choreographing a dance. This made rehearsals ridiculously fun, though physically strenuous. I am so lucky to have a cast so willing to throw themselves into the work, sometimes literally. So please adjust your seats and tray tables to their upright and locked positions. Fasten your seat belts and turn off all electronic devices. As our dear housekeeper Bertha notes, “We’re in for a bumpy night”. Thank you for sharing in the fun! Marybeth Clark, Associate Artistic Director

Dock Street Theatre • America’s First Theatre The Historic Dock Street Theatre, America’s first theatre, was the first building in America built exclusively to be used for theatrical performances. Originally constructed in 1736 on the corner of Church Street and Dock Street (now Queen Street), the original Dock Street Theatre was probably destroyed by the Great Fire of 1740. In 1809, the elegant Planter’s Hotel was built on this site. After the Civil War, the Planter’s Hotel fell into disrepair and was slated for demolition. But in 1935, after Milton Pearlstine made the property available to the City of Charleston, and at the urging of the mayor and other prominent citizens, the building was selected for a Depression Era WPA (Works Progress Administration) project. At that time, a new performance space modeled on 18th century London playhouses was constructed within the shell of the old Planters Hotel, the hotel’s lobby serving as the lobby of the new theatre. After being closed for two centuries, the Historic Dock Street Theatre re-opened in 1937 and quickly became the centerpiece of the Charleston arts scene. In 2010, following a three year $19 million dollar renovation by the City of Charleston, the Historic Dock Street Theatre once again re-opened to reclaim its place as the jewel in Charleston’s artistic crown. Today the Historic Dock Street Theatre hosts some of Charleston’s finest performing arts organizations, including Spoleto Festival USA. Charleston Stage, which became the resident professional theatre at the Dock Street Theatre in 1978, produces over 120 performances here. Each season Charleston Stage plays to an audience of more than 42,000 patrons, including more than 20,000 South Carolina students who enjoy special school day performances throughout the year.

Grand Show Curtain “Window of Wonder”, Charleston Stage’s Grand Show Curtain, was created especially for Charleston Stage by nationally acclaimed Charleston artist Jonathan Green. “Window of Wonder” was commissioned by Barbara Burgess and John Dinkelspiel as a generous gift to Charleston Stage in 2010. 8 | (843) 577-7183 | www.charlestonstage.com
