    Feverish Spin of the Globe

    NEIL GENZLINGER

    June 6, 2013: Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days” is a story about the kind of trip any frequent traveler has experienced: a mishmash of highs and lows, of peak experiences, vexing missed connections and other catastrophes. The stage version of the tale now at the New Theater at 45th Street brings its own layer of mishmashing to the telling. It’s an odd combination of slick steampunk and cheesy vaudeville, high-tech razzle and low-budget dazzle.

    May 31, 2013: What does it take to go “Around the World in 80 Days?” Just two hours, five actors and some highly inventive theatricality.

    Michael Dale

    June 7, 2013: The last time Mark Brown’s charming and witty stage adaptation of Jules Verne’s Around The World In 80 Days played Off-Broadway, it was in a pocket-sized production highlighted by a pair of on-stage Foley artists providing live sound effects. But in the eye-popping new Off-Broadway production, director/designer Rachel Klein is working with considerably larger pockets.

    June 7, 2013: You don’t need a massive stage or cast to tell a sprawling story in the theater — not if you’ve got some ingenuity and nimble actors.

    Around the World in 80 Days

    Brian Scott Lipton

    June 7, 2013: It would be impossible to match onstage the visual spectacle of the 1956 Oscar-winning film version of Around the World in 80 Days. However, Rachel Klein's thoroughly inventive production of Mark Brown's five-actor play based on Jules Verne's globetrotting adventure, now at the New Theater at 45th Street, does quite a lot to measure up to its cinematic predecessor.
