Directed by Rachel Klein, opening is May 30 Off-Broadway.
He will be joined by Jimmy Ray Bennett (Speedy), Leo Ash Evens (Passepartout), Stephen Guarino (Fix) and Emily McNamara (Aouda).
The five actors portray a total of 39 roles.
Director Klein added, "I have been in love with Bryce’s work in the past and am thrilled to have him lead NYC on a journey around the world! He will bring Mark Brown’s hilarious and witty dialogue to life!"
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 New Theater at 45th Street is located at 354 West 45th Street. For tickets, priced $80 and $99, call (866) 811-4111 or click here.
