Brussels has a lot of theaters and many have very interesting programming, but certainly the gayest shows belong to TTO Theatre.
Located in Ixelles since its creation in 1995, in the middle of a multicultural area and only 2 steps away from the Porte de Namur metro station, the Toison d’Or Theater or TTO is a place in Brussels that advocates the Belgian creation with an obvious goal to amuse, to accompany, to reveal and to create.
Away from many theaters with centenary architecture, the TTO invites you into a warm and friendly environment to come and enjoy the plays but also the special atmosphere of this Brussels den.
Its artistic line is inspired by all sources of comedy, one man / one woman show, tragicomedy, “nonsense”, boulevard, music hall, dinner theater, officially assuming its willingness to talk about things seriously and slightly lightly of serious things.
The artistic direction is provided by the talented Nathalie Uffner, who also directs many plays.
The season begins on September 13 with Boeing Boeing, by Marc Camoletti, in a staging by Nathalie Uffner.
• Boeing-Boeing is a classic farce about polygamy written by French playwright Marc Camoletti.
• Hailed by the international press, played over 20 000 times since its Premiere in December 1960
Bernard, a successful Parisian architect, juggles three flight attendant fiancées: an American, a French and a German woman. He tracks their airlines’ timetables, and his long-suffering housekeeper, Bertha, reluctantly resets the menus and bedroom decor depending on the arrivals and departures. Bernard has been successful at convincing each woman that she is the only one. Unfortunately for Bernard, a new, faster Boeing jet has been introduced, changing the timetable. Weather delays occur, and complications arise when the women’s behaviour does not match Bernard’s careful planning.
• Boeing Boeing lands in TTO for ten days from 13/09/2012 to 27/10/2012,Wednesday to Saturday at 20.30pm
