"The World Goes Round," Landor Theatre
by Robert Gould - Jan 20, 2007

Robert McWhir's staging of the Kander and Ebb song showcase 'The World Goes Round', with musical direction by Heather Weir (currently playing at the Landor Theatre until February 10), displays an uneven mix of superb musical renditions and some near misses. Most of the songs are delivered with a high degree of accomplishment and the staging is generally full of energy and sophistication, perfectly balancing the layers of poignant emotion, cutting wit and Broadway bravado that pervades Kander and Ebb's musical theatre work. But some numbers miss the mark, let down by awkward, almost substandard, vocals - and the staging of 'All That Jazz' not only fails to conjure up anything that remotely resembles the choreographic arcs of the Fosse original but is also lacking in the sensuality that the number begs for. Ebb's lyric calls for them to 'let their stockings down' but the nylon seems reluctant to slip from the garters. (more...)
