A vibrant musical revue showcases incomparable song writers

Do such tunes as “New York, New York,” “Maybe this Time” and “Money” from Cabaret or

“All That Jazz” and “Class” from Chicago, float around in your head periodically? John Kander and Fred Ebb are the creative geniuses behind them.

“The World Goes ‘Round,” showcasing these hit musicals and other Broadway shows (“Zorba” for one), as well as films such as “Funny Lady,” makes it clear why this team of song writers is so good. The revue continues its 10-performance run at the Off-Center Stage tonight.

This musical revue, which takes its title from a tune headlining the film “New York, New York,” is an eclectic collection of moving love songs, hilarious comedy numbers and rousing anthems.

After premiering in New York in 1991 and running for 408 performances, it had a successful national tour.

The show received numerous awards, including the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical, and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical Revue, Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical, and Outstanding Director of a Musical.

Ken Getz directs and, along with Noreen Barnett, directs the music as well; choreography is by Kathy Goldie and Carolyn Winters.Good music and dance – what could be more fun?
