'Boeing-Boeing' to star Nora Dunn at Drury Lane Theatre
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
"Saturday Night Live" veteran Nora Dunn is part of the cast of the Tony Award-winning 2008 Broadway revival version of the giddy comedy "Boeing-Boeing" at Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace.
Jeff Award winner Stef Tovar plays Bernard, a jet-setting architect juggling three flight attendant fiancees with the help of his reluctant housekeeper, played by Dunn.
The action is set in Paris in the 1960s. Bernard’s life starts to unravel when a turbo-charged Boeing is introduced.
Dunn was Meryl Streep’s co-star in the Nancy Meyers film "It’s Complicated." Her TV credits include "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Entourage," "Private Practice," "Psych" and "Franklin & Bash," and she recently starred in Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s play "Love, Loss and What I Wore" in Chicago.
Dennis Zacek, former artistic director at Victory Gardens Theater and recipient of the 2001 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre, directs.
