The Pass Christian Theatre Project opens its fifth season with the Mississippi Gulf Coast premiere of The World Goes ‘Round, a lively musical review showcasing the songs of John Kander and Fred Ebb. Comprised of songs from their hit shows and films Chicago, Cabaret, Funny Lady, Woman of the Year and numerous others, and crafted by David Thompson, Scott Ellis, and Susan Stroman, The World Goes ‘Round received three Drama Desk awards for its original Off-Broadway production.
Frank Rich of The New York Times wrote “…The World Goes ‘Round takes off like a shot in its the very first number and rarely descends to earth.” Music Theatre International says “Filled with humor, romance, drama and nonstop melody, this…is a thrilling celebration of life and the fighting spirit that keeps us all going…. The nonstop hit-parade features unforgettable gems, including ‘Mister Cellophane,’ ‘Maybe This Time,’ ‘Cabaret’ and ‘New York, New York,’ seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.”
Directed by Tara S. Davis, the cast includes Leslie Aube’, Linda Aiavolasiti, Anita Gianni, Will Koolsbergen, Ellie Mauffrey, Lex Mauffrey, Mary Ellen Murphy, and Jim Rux, accompanied on piano by Kim Cheek.
