Riverdale Repertory Company kicks off the 2015-2016 season of productions at the Riverdale YM-YWHA with THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND, a dazzling revue of songs by the award-winning Broadway songwriting team of John Kander and Fred Ebb.

This sparking musical revue will be presented for four performances only:

Saturday, November 7 at 8pm
Sunday, November 8 at 3pm
Saturday, November 14 at 8pm
Sunday, November 15 at 3pm

Tickets are $12 and may be purchased at the door prior to the show, or in advance online or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 and selecting option 1.


THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND draws from the first quarter-century of the Kander & Ebb catalog. Over two dozen love songs, torch songs, and hilarious comic numbers swirl together to create a living tapestry in celebration of two titans of the American Musical Theatre.

A talented cast of 18 singer/dancers from Riverdale, Upper Manhattan, Yonkers, and beyond will perform classic songs from hit musicals like Cabaret and Chicago, as well as underappreciated gems from lesser-known shows including Woman of the Year and Zorba.

THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND features music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, and was conceived by Susan Stroman, David Thompson, and Scott Ellis.

The Riverdale Repertory Company production THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND is directed by Riverdale Y Director of Performing Arts Laurie Walton, with choreography by Emily Walton and music direction by Will Rich. The design team includes Tony Wan (Set Building), David Pentz (Lighting), Penelope Margeotes (Costumes), and Denise Eberly (Sound Design).

Originally titled AND THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND, the show premiered Off-Broadway in 1991, and ran for nearly a year, winning the Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and three Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical Revue.
