The reviewers all agree:
“In a nutshell, the performance of Boeing, Boeing at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn is an example of fine community theater. Its cast and production crew are seasoned, well-rounded, multi-talented individuals who are dedicated to sharing their passion with the public and supporting the arts in Maryland.” – Shannon Stiffer - Maryland Theater Guide
 
Boeing, Boeing”…is a non-stop laughfest, performed by one of the best ensembles I have seen on any local stage.”5 Stars- Joel Markowitz –  DC Metro Theater Arts
 
 
“In-flight entertainment for you passengers aboard this two-hour journey is truly at its peak. Roaring comedy that clips along at a breeze will keep you laughing in your seats for the duration of the flight.”
