Playhouse on Park treats theater denizens to professional performances all year long, as expert thespians utilize the intimate space to extract joyous emotions from audiences. Around the World in 80 Days yanks the bookmarks from Jules Verne's classic novel for a madcap journey without vaccinations or passports, teleporting audiences to the late 19th century. In an act of eccentric arrogance, aristocratic bachelor Phileas Fogg has 80 days to circle the globe by balloon, train, steamboat, and hand-cranked elephant, or else he loses his fortune and mustache wax. Five caffeinated actors play all 39 characters in whirlwind performances, tearing through costumes at the speed of Cher as the play travelogues through India, Asia, and America. Sophisticated enough to please the harshest child critics, but zany and unabashedly goofy enough to appease hyperactive parents, this relentlessly rollicking production bonds families in old-fashioned ridicule of Victorian virtues.
