Published Reviews

"There sure are plenty of laughs in this highly inventive, thoroughly enjoyable and family-friendly little show."

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"It's never an easy feat to blend just the right amount of narrative with the dramatic, but Hildreth easily gets the job done all within a two-hour duration, providing ample opportunity for laughter and whimsy."

Tim Sauers, Gay Chicago Magazine

"[A] wittily efficient adaptation of Jules Verne's prototypal science-fiction novel."

Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times (Chicago)

"[A] rollicking and deliciously literate adaptation of Verne's classic."

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"[A] fleet and funny caper."

Jenn Goddu, Chicago Reader

"True to its sci-fi pioneer author, the adventure romance ends with a scientific twist."

Larry Bommer, Chicago Tribune

"The Lifeline Theatre has accomplished an impressive feat with its adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days: It has taken the story of 60 characters in 50 locations in this play and made the production look effortlessly slick."

Max A. Herman, Chicago Arts & Entertainment
