Around the World in Eighty Days archiveOrson Welles's only attempt to write, direct and star in a lavish Broadway musical. Labelled 'Wellesapoppin' by one critic, Around The World has a sprightly score by Cole Porter. None of this work has been heard since 1946. Mr Phileas Fogg, a bachelor of means and exact habits, bets London's Whist Club that he can travel around the world in eighty days. Accompanied by Pat Passepartout, his Yankee valet, and Missus Aouda, an Indian maiden - and pursued by Detective Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard and Pat's Irish girlfriend Molly - Fogg journeys to Paris, Madrid, Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Hong Kong, California, the Rocky Mountains, and New York before returning to London and winning the wager.

Music Cole Porter. Lyrics Cole Porter. Book by Orson Welles.
