The Cleveland Stage Podcast 0303 - "Around the World in 80 Days" w/ Shahrazad Theatre

For the newest episode of CSP, Tyler welcomes his newest co-host, Becca Moseley. Becca has made the big time after years of toiling as a mere guest of the Pod.

Tyler and Becca, who is beside herself just thinking about how lucky she is, speak with Shahrazad Theatre co-founders Kyle Huff and August Scarpelli to discuss their upcoming adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic “Around the World in 80 Days” which will run at Ensemble Theatre November 30 - December 16.

The group discuss adapting classic works, what they learned from previous adaptations, and whether or not Becca is more excited now than she was when Kyle asked her to marry him.
