Around the World with Theatre Charlotte: The Americas

Madison Culver is a former Charlottean turned globe trotter. Following her recent graduation from Johnson & Wales University, Madison began an embark around the world not dissimilar to the journey Phileas Fogg and Jean Passepartout take in AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS.

Unlike Fogg and Passepartout, however, Madison is in no hurry to complete a multi-continental race. This means she has been able to stop and see all the sights Fogg and Passepartout missed during their journey—and luckily for us, she is taking Theatre Charlotte along for the adventure by exclusively sharing her stories and photos with us, which we will post here weekly during our production of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS.

To learn more about Madison, please visit Where The Wind Blows Now, the blog she started to chronicle her travels and help people find inspiration in the beauty of life.

Week 4: The Americas
The Americas--such a big place! From Costa Rica to New York, the Americas have captured my heart.

Costa Rica is everything one would think a hispanic country to be. Beautiful scenery, hot nights, spicy food, and dancing...of course. Spanish is a brilliant language; in fact, learning to speak it was probably my favorite part!

I could only imagine what New York was like when Mr. Fogg and Passepartout were there. I know for a fact it was far from similar to when I bounced along the streets of New York.

Check out what Mr. Fogg and Passepartout missed out:

from new york city... jaco, costa rica!

at it's finest. volcano arenal.

animal sightings in limón.

beach life, here in limón, is quite contagious.


cartago, costa rica's former capital city. its town center boasts a beautiful garden oasis.

zacero. this small town hosts interesting topiary arches and figures in its city center.

some of the faces that one will find in zacero.

i must have a thing for cemeteries. i always seem to find one, and once i'm there you can't get me to leave. this cemetery is 600 meters from my house, so i can visit it as frequently as i want.

black crow.

my hammock. where i choose to reside most of the time. let's see where the wind will blow us next...

Theatre Charlotte's production of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS runs through April 1. Tickets are available through CarolinaTix at 704-372-1000 or
