If you've ever traveled anywhere by boat, plane, train or bus and lived to tell about it, this is the show for you! Based on the best-selling book from Fodor's, this hilarious revue offers travel tips and cautionary tales certain to tickle the ribs - or chill the spine - of anyone who has ever set foot outside of his or her own hometown.
Everything from the coach class blues to pesky customs officials is lampooned in this smash-hit off-Broadway revue. One segment lambastes "automated flight reservation systems" as a man tries to book a flight with "Miracle Airlines" ("If it's a good flight, it's a Miracle.") Lost luggage is the subject of another about a hapless business traveler who finds himself "Naked in Pittsburgh." So hop on for the ride - it's sure to be a hysterical journey.
"Hilarious! Highly Recommended!"

"A razor sharp musical send-up of the foibles of travel!"
--New York Law Journal
"Soars with flying colors!"
-- New York magazine
This musical comedy romp delivers!"
"Under the capable direction of Marc Mercury and some clever choreography by Kristie Rutledge, the seven actors and inspired piano of Benjamin Jose take us on a tour of the world."
"Rachel [Rawlins Prescott], who sings and dances right into your heart...is amusing, while Richie [Cunningham]...has a very fine voice designed to entertain; he does so consistently."
Mitchell Ehrlich of On The House raves "It's no secret that this play is funny from start to finish."
"Special kudos go to Andrew Block, whenever you hear the dreaded words, 'Please listen to the following choices,' you'll think of his performance."
"So if you're interested in a night of playful lunacy, this is the comedy to see."
