Broadway Comedy About Luxury Travel Agents and Travelers

Written By mela armono on Thursday, May 8, 2014 | 6:52 PM

From January 9 – February 9, 2014, a new play I am producing, Craving for Travel, will make its world premiere Off-Broadway in New York City.
Off-Broadway Comedy About Luxury Travel Agents and Travelers
Off-Broadway Comedy
As the President of Strong Travel, a thriving luxury travel agency based in Dallas, I have initiated a number of fun, unprecedented projects to stay energized and engaged with my suppliers and clients: I’ve created an iPad/iPhone app, written songs, and authored two luxury travel books. I undertook Craving for Travel to get the message out about the abilities of the travel agent.  Doing this as a theatrical comedy for a limited engagement in New York, I hope will bring attention to all sectors of the travel industry.

To write the play, I engaged a Tony Award winner, Andy Sandberg, and his writing partner, Greg Edwards. Andy is also directing. Andy and Greg are an excellent and proven comic writing duo in the theater world, and I am excited for audiences to see their work.  We have also brought in major players for design and production, including several Tony Award winners and nominees.

The cast consists of two Broadway veterans, Michele Ragusa and Thom Sesma, who together play 30 characters—chiefly, Joanne and Gary, rival travel agents (and former spouses) who will tackle any request, no matter how impossible, and any client, no matter how unreasonable, to win their industry’s most prestigious honor: the Globel Prize.

The play reminds us why we travel—and everything that can happen when we do. While our primary goal is to entertain with a fun evening at the theater, we also hope that audiences will leave with a new appreciation for travel, as well as all that goes into making travel a memorable and rewarding experience.  Perhaps you’ll even start planning your next trip as you leave the theater!
