Around The World In 80 Days,
Inspired by the Jules Verne classic, Around the World in 80 Days is a dazzling fast-paced play with 39 characters comedically portrayed by 5 unparalleled actors.
To win a bet, Phileas Fogg and his acrobatic sidekick Passepartout
must circle the globe and return to London inside of 80 days.Unknowingly
pursued by a tireless detective convinced Fogg is a robber on the run,
the fast-minded, fleet-footed pair traverse 4 continents and 3 oceans in
a white-knuckled sprint. Phileas Fogg is the Victorian Action Hero.
Eccentric London gentleman-turned-adventurer Phileas Fogg’s
journey around the world may seem outlandish when set against the
backdrop of our super-connected modern world; but, when French novelist
Jules Verne’s acclaimed Around the World in Eighty Days was first
published in the serial Le Temps in 1872, much of Verne’s readership
believed the story to be true.
