Trading Spaces hostess Paige Davis and film star Rebecca Gayheart are packing their bags and joining the cast of Broadway’s hit comedy Boeing-Boeing as two sexy stewardesses. They start performances at the Longacre Theatre on October 7.

Davis, who will replace Kathryn Hahn as plucky American stewardess Gloria, is best known as the host of the popular TLC home redecoration show Trading Spaces. On Broadway, she appeared in the ensemble of Chicago and later played Roxie Hart. On the road, she’s played the title role of Sweet Charity and Babette in Beauty and the Beast. Regional credits include Maria in The Sound of Music at The Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, April in Company at Missouri Repertory Theatre, Val in A Chorus Line at Austin Music Theatre, and Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Chicago Cultural Center.

Gayheart, taking on the role of feisty Italian stewardess Gabriella originated by Gina Gershon, made her Broadway debut as Shelby in the 2005 revival of Steel Magnolias. Previously she won a Back Stage West Garland Award for playing Sunny in the Los Angeles production of The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Her numerous big screen credits include Nothing to Lose, Urban Legend, Jawbreaker and Scream 2. On TV, Gayheart starred in the series Vanished, Wasteland, Beverly Hills 90201 and Earth and has also appeared on Dead Like Me, Nip/Tuck and Ugly Betty.

Original cast members Gershon and Hahn will play their final performance in Boeing-Boeing on Sunday, October 5.

Boeing-Boeing also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance as Robert, Greg Germann as Bernard, Christine Baranski as Bertha and Missi Pyle as Gretchen.
