"STRANGE TRAVEL SUGGESTIONS," Kurt Vonnegut Jr. once wrote, "are dancing lessons from God." Indeed, it's those sudden inspirations and unpredictable encounters that make world travel so wild and illuminating. Oakland writer Jeff Greenwald ? author of Shopping for Buddhas and The Size of the World -- brings the hand of destiny into this breakthrough show: an improvised monologue inspired by the vagaries of wanderlust. Audience members step on to the stage, and spin a huge, colorful Wheel of Fortune. Round and 'round it spins, and where it stops, our story begins....
"Looking for global intrigue, great laughs, and high drama? Go traveling with Jeff Greenwald and you'll find it all -- on one stage."
-- Wes "Scoop" Nisker
"Hilarious, Spontaneous, Gregarious! Don't Miss it!!
-- Stephen Kent, Producer of "Music of the World" on KPFA
"I love this show! Jeff Greenwald could take a trip to Costco to buy socks, and I'd want to hear the story. Seventeen thumbs up!?
-- Mary Roach, author of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
