Broadway Boeing Boeing and 39 Steps

Anyone seen either/both?? I'm considering them, since I've seen a lot of the current offers and these I haven't.

Worthwhile?? Also would Young Frankenstein be the best option of the three??

"The best option of the three?" Obviously, that would depend on your tastes.....and whom you ask!
Both The 39 Steps and Boeing Boeing are great fun.....not great theater, but great fun. That's not meant as a criticism of either, just putting them in a proper perspective!

Saw Boeing Boeing the day before yesterday and enjoyed it immensely. Fab cast who appear to be having a lot of fun. Great brain candy on a Sunday afternoon.

Haven't seen 39 Steps but it looked good.

Young Frankenstein did its pre-Broadway shakedown run in Seattle (many plays do) and had rather lukewarm reviews from some friends of ours (whose judgment we trust) as well as the local press.

And are you talking discount tix vs. full price?

Young Frankenstein, imo, was entertaining, but a disappointment as compared to the movie.

Boeing Boeing is a farce with a great cast. 2nd Act is especially good.

Like HowardR said - it depends on your tastes.

Thank you greatly, for the information!!!

Yes, looking at discounted tickets.

I'll include both in my trip in a couple weeks. Thanks again.

I saw all 3 and would rate them like this: Young Frankenstein, 39 steps, Boeing Boeing. Really enjoyed the 1st two. I thought Boeing was too long and could have cut out some scenes. But all a matter of taste.
