Gotham Radio Theatre will bring the fabulous adventure of Phileas Fogg and his exotic race around the world to the stage. The famous story begins with two astonishing headlines in the Daily Telegraph published in 1872.
A Gentleman Robber Has Stolen 55 Thousand Pounds from the Bank of England and Astonishing! By Using Trains and Steamboats, You Can Now Go Around the World in 80 Days. At a London gentleman's club a wager is placed and Phileas Fogg sets out to prove the latter to his colleagues as Scotland Yard searches for the gentleman bank robber.
Listen as Gotham's version takes you on each moment's journey, from when Fogg rescues an Indian Princess to when he sails a burning ship, and much more. Without a doubt, the sound effects of 'Around The World in 80 Days' will be as interesting to 'hear' as to 'see' performed.
The cast includes Timothy Carter as Phileas Fogg, Brian Cheng as Passepartout, Bob Ader as Sir Francis Comarty, Vince Trani as Inspector Fix, and Sarah Elmaleh as Aouda. Sydnie Grosberg Ronga serves as the director and also adapted the novel for the radio play. Vince Trani performs and composed original music for the production.
