The crème de la crème of parody movies, Airplane!, comes to you LIVE on stage in a show that both satirizes and lovingly embraces the comedy classic you already know by heart.

Follow the tormented former fighter pilot, Ted Striker, as he tries to win back the affections of stewardess Elaine Dickenson on the doomed flight 209.

Full of the moments you love, and some new takes you might not expect, this ain't no passive theater event. Shout out lines, dance, sing and more when you join us aboard the Trans-American Flight traveling from LAX to Chicago O'Hare. Just don't eat the fish!

It's a great time for casual fans who only know a couple lines and a great time for a hardcore fan who can recite it word for word. I'm excited to see and experience whatever they do next!

YES!!! Airplane Live! is that rare theatrical event: tons of fun, family friendly (I could safely take my parents to it :) ), sing-a-long, shout-a-long, audience response, the American equivalent of the Great British Panto. It was a great throwback to the classic airplane movie with a lot of new and updated material. Really tight, pacey direction that keeps the action moving, a lot of very well drawn characters who lead you along in the story, get you laughing, get you laughing a bit more, and suddenly the show is over and you want to keep going! Great work from the cast, really well-done direction, a Five Star experience. Highly Recommended!!!

The Zucker Brothers' classic is reimagined for the stage in 'Airplane Live!', an entertaining production that preserves the spirit of the film while making some modifications to bring it into the 21st century.

I tried. I REALLY TRIED, ladies.

I DIG the original movie. WANTED to dig this play.

I tried. They did some updates to the jokes that were fun. It could have worked!

I tried. I guess I picked the wrong week to quit taking acid before seeing a Fringe show.

When you take a movie and shrink it to 1 hour--should be NO pacing issues. There were.

When you parody something--should find people who can beautify the original tone and delivery. There were not.

Two actors did it--the doc and the dude who picks the wrong day to quit stuff. GOOD ON YOU TWO!

Everyone else was just not good or bad. They were just doing things. THIS IS AIRPLANE. Do more than the things.

I TRIED. I REALLY TRIED. Maybe they'll get funnier.

Your risk.
