The production officially opened May 30 following previews that began May 9.

Directed and designed by Rachel Klein, the cast includes Shirine Babb, Guy LeMonnier, Gary Littman, Matt Lutz and James Seol. The actors portray a total of 39 roles.

Around the World in 80 Days, according to press notes, is a "fun frolic and fantastic update of the visionary classic. To win a bet, Phileas Fogg, the Victorian action hero, and his acrobatic sidekick Passepartout must circle the globe and return to London inside of 80 days. Unknowingly pursued by a tireless detective convinced that Fogg is a robber on the run, the fast-minded, fleet-footed pair traverse four continents and three oceans in a white-knuckled sprint."

The production also features scenic and house design by Robert Andrew Kovach, lighting design by Ben Kato, sound design by Sean Hagerty, projection design by Katherine Freer, costume design by Kae Burke, properties design by Elena Delgado and makeup design by Jessica Jade Jacob.
