Five actors use lightning fast costume changes to play all 39 characters in a madcap comedy that’s been called “Monty Python meets Jules Verne.” In 1872, Phileas Fogg wagers that he can circle the globe in just 80 days. With his fortune on the line, Fogg and his valet use rail, steamer, and elephant as they race through India, Asia, and America and face one adventure after another. This delightful adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic story is fun for the entire family.
Unabashedly theatrical…smart enough to make sophisticated adults laugh out loud and shamelessly silly enough to keep children interested and entertained- The New York Times
