Coronado Playhouse continues its 2021 season with “The World Goes ‘Round,” the popular Kander and Ebb revue, performing live from Friday, Sept. 3 through Oct. 10.
“The World Goes ‘Round” is a brilliant revue of the songbook from the multi-Tony award-winning team of John Kander and Fred Ebb. The original production of this stunningly constructed retrospective of the prolific musical theatre collaborators won three Drama Desk Awards. It was conceived by director Scott Ellis, choreographer Susan Stroman, and librettist David Thompson, who collaborated on such Kander and Ebb shows as “Steel Pier” and the 1996 revival of “Chicago.”
Filled with humor, romance, drama and nonstop melody, this theatre favorite is a thrilling celebration of life and the fighting spirit that keeps us all going. The show opens with “And the World Goes ‘Round” with the message that no matter what good or bad things happen in life, the world, and life, goes on.
Five singer/dancers find themselves careening through the world of love, babies, coffee, and everything in between. From “Cabaret” to “Chicago,” the nonstop hit-parade features unforgettable gems, including “Mr. Cellophane,” “Maybe This Time,” “Cabaret” and “New York, New York,” seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.
“The World Goes ‘Round” is a thrilling eclectic collection of love songs, torch songs, and acerbically witty comic numbers. The musical arrangements and witty libretto will undoubtedly enthrall audiences and send them home humming a tune or two.
Coronado Playhouse welcomes a new director, Lauren Haughton Gillis, to the project. Haughton Gillis is thrilled to be creating art at Coronado Playhouse. Single tickets are available for the remaining shows of the season. Please contact the box office, www.coronadoplayhouse.org.
