Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! 

Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. With his resourceful servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out to circle the globe in an unheard-of 80 days. But his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he's a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show as 5 actors portraying 39 characters traverse 7 continents in Mark Brown's adaptation of one of the great adventures of all time.
