Still trying to figure out what to do for Valentine’s Day? Tired of going to restaurants and are ready for something different? Do you not want to spend a lot of money? Well perfect, perhaps you should check out the offer from award-winning professional theatre company International City Theatre. For just $80, you and your sweetheart can attend a performance of their currently running hit comedy “Around the World in 80 Days” February 14-17.

In addition to seeing the critically acclaimed, staged adaptation of this classic novel, you will also receive personalized seating in the theatre, a rose and chocolates for your loved one. This sounds pretty romantic to us.

Did we also mention that “Around the World in 80 Days” was just named an L.A. Times Critic’s Choice? Are you unfamiliar with this famous tale? It’s 1872 and Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and life at risk. Will he circle the globe in an unheard-of 80 days, or will the cunning Detective Fix dash his hopes? Danger, romance and comic surprises abound as five actors portraying 39 characters traverse seven continents. You read that correctly, 5 actors play 39 roles!

Valentine’s Day allows you to spend some quality time with that person you love most. Why not give them the ‘world’? It’ll only cost you $80 and you don’t need to go through customs. What’s more romantic than such a thoughtful gesture as a trip around the world? Exactly, the answer is nothing! Pack your bags and we will see you at the theatre!

Mention code CUPID to purchase this offer. “Around the World in 80 Days” runs through February 17 at International City Theatre, with performances at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center. For tickets, call 562-436-4610 or visit
