A co-production of ArtsCentric, Everyman Theatre, and Olney Theatre Center

In musical theatre, the team of John Kander & Fred Ebb produced iconic songs for unforgettable characters like Roxy in Chicago, the Emcee in Cabaret, Zorba, Chita Rivera’s Spider Woman— not to mention Liza Minelli’s signature number for the film New York, New York. The World Goes 'Round brings together some of their greatest hits from a life in the theatre in a brand new production featuring celebrity tributes and songs not included in the original production. That, plus a cast of Broadway veterans and DMV all-stars, makes this a landmark production, bringing Kander & Ebb to a new generation.

Featuring: Natascia Diaz, Kevin S. McAllister, Harris Milgrim, Nova Y. Payton, and Karen Vincent
