The Loft Theatre Company, Leamington presents The World Goes 'Round from Wednesday 29 November to Saturday 9 December 2023.
For its final main house production for 2023, The Loft Theatre Company, Leamington Spa presents The World Goes 'Round. With music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, it was conceived by Scott Ellis, Susan Stroman, and David Thompson. In one of its many reviews it was described by The New York Times as:
“An unexpected delight: A handsome, tasteful, snazzily staged outpouring of song and dance that celebrates all the virtues of the Kander-Ebb catalogue”
"Having listened to the CD of The World Goes 'Round for many years it has been a privilege to bring this extensive Kander & Ebb back catalogue to life on the Loft stage", says Director, James Suckling. Musical Director, Liam Walker adds: "Kander & Ebb have written some of the most iconic songs of all time and hearing our talented company breathing life into them has been a joyous experience."
The World Goes ‘Round is a brilliantly constructed revue of the songbook from the multi-Tony award-winning team of musical theatre collaborators Kander and Ebb, with the original production winning three Drama Desk Awards. The revue takes its title from a tune the songwriting team wrote for Liza Minnelli to sing in the film New York, New York.
Filled with humour, romance, drama and nonstop melody from Cabaret to Chicago, the 5 strong cast and live orchestra feature unforgettable gems, including “Maybe This Time,” “Cabaret” and “New York, New York,” seamlessly interwoven into a passionate evening of musical theatre.
This non-professional production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised performances materials are also supplied by MTI.
The World Goes 'Round runs at The Loft Theatre, Victoria Colonnade, Leamington Spa from Wednesday 29 November to Saturday 9 December with a performance each evening at 7:30pm, except Sunday 3 December, when the performance will be at 5pm. There will be no performance on Monday 4 December during the scheduled cast break.
