Bring the family on a trip to the edge of the world with this musical adaptation of Jules Verne’s masterpiece!
The new show from the creators of the Molières-nominated musical “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”!
A musical comedy for 4 to 77 year-olds, produced by Double D Productions (David Rozen and David Rebouh)
Phileas Fogg is a secretive, phlegmatic gentleman who lives his life with near-mathematical precision. He spends much of his time at the Reform Club playing cards and discussing various matters with the other gentlemen of the club. One day, during a discussion, Fogg announces that it is now possible to go around the world in 80 days. Sir Thomas Flanagan, his lifelong rival, challenges him to fulfill this promise. He secretly hopes to humiliate and discredit Fogg in the eyes of his colleagues and thus be able to become the head of the Reform Club, a position that the two men are fighting over.
Fogg, known for never having left the country (or even London for that matter), nevertheless seems sure of himself and takes up the challenge, putting almost his entire fortune at stake in this crazy gamble. From Paris to New York via Bombay and Hong Kong, the gentleman and his new French servant Passepartout set off on an adventure that will be strewn with pitfalls…
