Tom Lister and Daniel Casey will star in a UK tour of Boeing-Boeing.

The hit comedy, about a man with three fiancés who are all flight attendants, was originally written in French by Marc Camoletti before being translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans. It ran initially in the West End in 1962 for a total of seven years, and was later revived in 2007 starring Roger Allam and Mark Rylance, directed by Matthew Warchus. The production then transferred to Broadway where it won two Tony Awards.

The tour, directed by Guy Unsworth, will begin at Brighton Theatre Royal on 4 September before visiting Glasgow, Southend, Richmond, Guildford, Birmingham, Winchester, Bromley, Derby, Peterborough, Darlington, Northampton, Huddersfield, Crewe, Dartford, Barnstaple and Woking, concluding in Nottingham on 2 May 2020.

Lister was recently seen in 42nd Street in the West End, while Casey is known for his appearances in Midsomer Murders and EastEnders.

Further casting and dates are to be announced.
