Around the World in 80 Days

Mark Brown
Aug 23, 2012 to Sep 30, 2012

This zany adaptation of the Jules Verne novel chronicles what may have been the first “Great Race.” Phileas Fogg has wagered his entire life savings that he can accomplish the feat of the title. He and his resourceful manservant, Passepartout, confront a series of misadvantures as the clock and the calendar press relentlessly on.

"It's Indiana Jones meets The Perils of Pauline on The Amazing Race. Will you have a good time on this ride? Bet on it."

Elaine Liner, Dallas Observer
