The possibilities get started early this week and include a creative gathering, live music, art workshops, comedy and more. Read on for our picks of some of the best things to do through October 22, 2017 in the Hamptons and on the East End.

“Boeing Boeing” Performances

Southampton Cultural Center's Center Stage presents Marc Camoletti’s “Boeing Boeing” from October 20 through November 5, 2017. Performances on Thursdays and Fridays are at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

“Boeing Boeing” centers on 1960s bachelor Bernard. Living in a flat in Paris and engaged to three gorgeous stewardesses seems idylic until Bernard’s friend Robert comes to stay and a new speedier Boeing jet launches and throws a wrench into his carefully calculated planning. With all three stewardesses in town simultaneously, Robert forgets which lies go where and chaos ensues. “Boeing Boeing” won two Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Play and for Mark Rylance as Leading Actor in a Play. At Center Stage, “Boeing Boeing" features Dane DuPuis, Shannon DuPuis, Samantha Honig, John Leonard, Catherine Maloney and Josephine Wallace.

General admission tickets are $25 and student tickets (under 21 with ID) are $15. Dinner/Theatre packages at Plaza Café are available Thursdays through Saturdays. Southampton Cultural Center is located at 25 Pond Ln, Southampton, NY 11968.
