East Brunswick, New Jersey’s Playhouse 22 will kick off its 2013-2014 season with “The World Goes ‘Round,” a musical revue showcasing iconic and lesser-known songs by Broadway heroes John Kander and Fred Ebb. The show runs on weekends from September 20 through October 6, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm.
In addition, there will be a show at 8 pm on Thursday, September 26, and the show on Saturday, September 28 is canceled. Tickets are $22 for adults and $20 for senior citizens and students.
“The World Goes ‘Round” is directed by two-time 2013 NJACT Perry Award nominee Bill Seesselberg and produced by Nick Falco.
It will feature the talents of Jen Hanselman, Pam Jorgensen, Cristy Miller, Bill Osman, and Mark Piltz, under the musical direction of Rory Chalcraft, and choreographed by Susan Zuckerman. Elaborate production numbers and dazzling costumes reminiscent of the glory days of old-time Broadway will be on display.
Among the songs are classics such as “All That Jazz” from “Chicago,” Kander and Ebb’s most successful creation, and “The Money Song,” from “Cabaret,” as well as underappreciated gems, such as “A Quiet Thing,” from the Great Depression-set satire “Flora, the Red Menace,” and the title tune from “Kiss of the Spider Woman.”
