Buckle up for this hilarious lampoon of Fodor's best-selling travel guide.

If you've ever traveled anywhere by boat, plane, train or bus and lived to tell about it, this is the show for you! Based on the best-selling book from Fodor's, Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know is a  hilarious revue that offers travel tips and cautionary tales certain to tickle the ribs -  or chill the spine - of anyone who has ever set foot outside of his or her own hometown. 

Everything from the coach class blues to pesky customs officials is lampooned in this smash-hit off-Broadway revue. One segment lambastes "automated flight reservation systems" as a man tries to book a flight with "Miracle Airlines" ("If it's a good flight, it's a Miracle.") Lost luggage is the subject of another about a hapless business traveler who finds himself "Naked in Pittsburgh."

Originally presented in a cabaret setting with two men, two women, and a pianist and bass player who both sing, Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know can be performed by virtually any number of people, virtually anywhere. So hop on for the ride - it's sure to be a hysterical hit for your theatre company.
