The time: 1872. The claim: The world can be traveled in 80 days. The wager: 20,000 pounds. Determined to win, Phileas Fogg sets off with a rigid itinerary and bewildered new valet in tow—only to discover the unpredictable just might be the most rewarding of all. Join the National Players as they travel by boat, train, and elephant in Jules Verne’s epic adventure. Full of daring rescues, brash duels, and unexpected romance, Around the World in 80 Days is a trip you won’t soon forget.
