Michele Ragusa and Thom Sesma star in the world premiere of Craving for Travel, which will begin performances Jan. 9, 2014, at the Peter J. Sharp Theater.

Greg Edwards (Neurosis: A New MusicalTaking the Plunge) and Andy Sandberg's (Shida, The Last Smoker in America) play will officially open Jan. 22; performances will continue through Feb 9.

Directed by Sandberg, the play will feature Ragusa (Young Frankenstein, Disaster!) and Sesma (The Lion King, The Times They Are A-Changin') playing 30 characters, including rival travel agents (and former spouses) vying for their industry's most prestigious honor: The Globel Prize.

Craving for Travel press notes state: "With their reputations on the line, travel agents Joanne and Gary will 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."
