Pirate takes over Boeing-Boeing

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 15 May 2008

The cast of Boeing-Boeing will be joined for a limited season by Pirates Of The Caribbean star Kevin McNally. He will take over the part of Parisian playboy Bernard on 3 September for four weeks only.

McNally played Gibbs, the first mate of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy. He has worked extensively in theatre, with credits including World Music at the Donmar Warehouse, The Lady In The Van at the Queen’s, Naked at the Almeida, Dead Funny and Plunder at the Savoy and Exact Change at the Lyric Hammersmith. He has been seen in many recent films, such as De-Lovely, The Phantom Of The Opera, Johnny English, Sliding Doors, Irish Jam and Entrapment, and has just completed filming on the Tom Cruise World War II movie Valkyrie. Television credits include Life On Mars, Bloodlines, Dunkirk, Spooks, Shackleton, Rab C Nesbitt, Enigma and Diana.

He will take over from Adrian Dunbar to join Doon Mackichan, Amy Nuttall, Rhea Perlman, Elena Roger and Neil Stuke in the jet-setting retro comedy, playing a successful architect who lives in the French capital and juggles three air hostess girlfriends who know nothing about each other. His long-suffering housekeeper Bertha helps him with a sophisticated timetable that allows each girl to stay with him when they are in town, and when his old English school friend Robert arrives, Bernard gets the chance to show him the schedule in action. However the new double speed Boeing, delays and changes in timetables create havoc with his scheme, with farcical results.

Boeing-Boeing opened at the Comedy in February and is a translation by Beverly Cross from the original 1962 French play by Mark Camoletti. It is currently booking to 20 October.
