A witty collection of the best songs from Cabaret, Chicago, All That Jazz, Kiss of the Spider Woman, New York , New York, Funny Lady etc. The big belt numbers, acerbically witty songs and soulful tunes make a delight evening of entertainment.

And the World Goes ‘Round  won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and The Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical Revue.

In his New York Times review, Frank Rich wrote:

“And the World Goes ‘Round: The Songs of Kander and Ebb,” the new revue at the commodiously renovated Westside Theater, may be its authors’ long overdue smash. The evening is an unexpected delight: a handsome, tasteful, snazzily staged outpouring of song and dance that celebrates all the virtues of the Kander-Ebb catalogue while scrupulously avoiding most of the cloying cliches of and-then-I-wrote anthologies. The revue is sophisticated enough to satisfy aficionados like myself, who recently spent a week’s allowance to replace a worn copy of the out-of-print cast album of “The Happy Time,” and welcoming enough to convert new audiences to the Kander-Ebb fold. The five fresh performers, mostly familiar but unheralded Broadway hands, are the best team of its sort to hit town since the quintet in “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”

Caught between warring families, Romeo and Juliet meet at party and quickly ignite each other. As we follow the star-crossed lovers through the rises and falls of forbidden love, we are asked to consider the cost of letting our heart lead and the ramifications of adult actions on a child’s world. What can young love teach us – and what happens refuse to learn until it’s too late?
