Blog Post - November 6, 2019

Category: What's New

The majestically mysterious, fabulously wealthy, heartbreakingly lonely Victorian Phileas Fogg has determined, with mathematical precision, that the world can be circumnavigated in 80 days. On this belief, he has wagered his entire fortune. Will bandits, a herd of buffalo, an act of chivalry, an unreliable but ever-faithful valet, and an unrelenting inspector from Scotland Yard keep him from his impossible task? Follow Fogg and his unforgettable companions aboard steamships, locomotives, and pachyderms as they learn about love, themselves, and a world that they never anticipated. Directed by Executive Artistic Director Kristianne Kurner after she returns from her voyage of 100 days around the world. With original pirate rock ‘n roll music by The Shantyannes.

“Not a minute is wasted in this new, family-friendly adaptation of Jules Verne's 1873 classic. Laura Eason's brisk script runs with the same clockwork precision that Phileas Fogg times his globe-trotting adventures to win his famous wager... Bursting with imagination, this exuberant whistle-stop tour through Verne is a lot of fun and a trip worth making.” --The Stage

“Fun and imaginative... This spin on Jules Verne's classic hot air balloon romp is an eccentric treat.” --Time Out
