The Barn Theatre’s outdoor festival continues full steam apace with Kander and Ebb’s The World Goes ‘Round
The Barn Theatre in Cirencester and Piers Cottee-Jones have announced the casting for their new outdoor production of the Kander & Ebb musical revue The World Goes ‘Round.
The revue, which features songs from Kander & Ebb’s hit musicals including Chicago and Cabaret, will run for two weeks during the Barn Theatre’s Summer outdoor theatre festival Barnfest.
The World Goes ‘Round, conceived by Susan Stroman, David Thompson & Scott Ellis, follows five individuals as they find themselves careening through the world of love, babies and coffee. From Cabaret to Chicago, the Drama Desk award-winning revue features unforgettable gems, including “Mr. Cellophane”, “Maybe This Time”, “Cabaret” and “New York, New York”, seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.
The cast for The World Goes ‘Round will be George Arvidson (The Outpost, Les Miserables), Jenny Fitzpatrick (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Ghost), Nick Barstow (Zorro, Just So), Rosalind Ford (Once, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Ryan Carter (Motown The Musical, The Boy Friend).
The production will be directed by Kirk Jameson with musical direction by Nick Barstow. The pair have previously collaborated with the Barn Theatre on their 2018 revival production of the Stiles & Drewe musical Just So. During lockdown they have both been collaborating with Alice Fearn on her digital concert series Intermissions.
