"Gary and Joanne, rival travel agents and former spouses, are vying for their industry's most prestigious honor: the Globel Prize," press notes state. "With their reputations on the line, they'll tackle any request, no matter how impossible, and any client, no matter how unreasonable. Full of overzealous travelers, overbooked flights, and hoteliers who are just over it, Craving for Travel reminds us why we travel…and everything that can happen when we do."
Commissioned and produced by travel agent Jim Strong, Craving for Travel's creative team includes Charlie Corcoran (set design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Michael McDonald (costume design) and Bart Fasbender and Dave Sanderson (sound design). Pamela Edington is the production stage manager, and Andrew Jones is the general manager.
