Gotham Radio Theatre will bring the fabulous adventure of Phileas Fogg and his exotic race around the world to the stage on June 11th in New York City. 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.
They will perform two shows at 7 pm and 9 pm on Monday June 11th at the Arclight Theater at 152 West 71st. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved through the website GRT (http://gothamradiotheatre.com) Tickets are also available through TDF.

Gotham actors portray fictional 1940's stars of stage, screen and radio who perform the Gotham radio play. These 40's personalities are long running characters and bring the audience an added entertaining dimension of a 'show within a show.
