The Sebastien Azzopardi/ Sacha Danino adaptation of Jules Verne's masterpiece had been playing to sold out houses in Paris for over four years when Marynell and Tobin saw the show in September 2009. Securing permission to perform the show was easy: all Marynell had to do was translate and adapt their French romp into an even rompier English version. Boats, trains, elephants, detectives, fortune cookies, cowboys, jungles, belly dancers, djellabas, sheep, and--of course--a damsel in distress. (December 2010)
