Going Round with Kevin McAlister at Everyman Theatre

By Gavin Witt | Posted in Interviews, Staff Blogs, WBJC Programs | Comments Off on Going Round with Kevin McAlister at Everyman Theatre

The much-loved, oft-performed musical revue And the World Goes Round, featuring treasured selections from the songbook of iconic musical theater duo Kander and Ebb (creators of such enduring treasures as Cabaret and Chicago), gets a fresh update and brand new take in a production now running at Baltimore’s Everyman Theatre.

This latest version of a show popular since its debut in 1991, playing through July 2nd, adds additional material from the composer and lyricist’s output created since the original production–including more selections from Kiss of the Spiderwoman and songs from the groundbreaking The Scottsboro Boys. In its current incarnation, And the World Goes Round was directed by, and features in its five-person cast, multifaceted artist Kevin McAlister, who joined me to talk about the production.
