Photo Flash: First Look at Half Moon Theatre's THE WORLD GOES 'ROUND

Join them now through November 16 as Half Moon Theatre Company (HMT) kicks off its sizzling Fall/Winter season at The Culinary Institute of America with The World Goes 'Round, a stunning revue of the music of Tony Award-winning songwriters Kander and Ebb. From Cabaret to Chicago, the non-stop hit-parade features unforgettable gems like "All That Jazz," "Cabaret," and "New York, New York," seamlessly interwoven into an up-tempo evening of musical theatre. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

An overwhelming hit Off-Broadway when it opened in 1991, The World Goes 'Round won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and three Drama Desk Awards. Audiences will recognize many of the songs made famous by Kander and Ebb and their muse, Liza Minnelli.

Michael Schiralli, who directed HMT's popular Side By Side by Sondheim and the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play Nico: Underground, will direct The World Goes 'Round.

The full cast of The World Goes 'Round includes Christopher deProphetis*, Melissa Marye Lehman, Kenneth Kyle Martinez, Lisa Sabin*, and Denise Summerford*. Costumes are designed by Charlotte Palmer Lane, lighting by Henry Siebecker, and sound design by Zach Dexter.

Drama Desk winner and Broadway veteran Denise Summerford, who delighted audiences in HMT's popular Side By Side With Sondheim, said, "I am thrilled to bring the indelible melodies of Kander and Ebb to the Hudson Valley. The World Goes 'Round features songs like "All That Jazz," "How Lucky Can You Get," "Maybe This Time," and "New York, New York" sung by a cast of Broadway veterans. As an actor, it is an honor to be able to perform this caliber of music. It stretches you musically, vocally and intellectually. There's nothing like it. It is an evening of perfection."

Lisa Sabin, a professional singer and actress based in Cold Spring, NY, has performed at New York City's Avery Fisher Hall, Symphony Space, Don't Tell Mama, and B. B. King's, and The Plush Room (San Francisco), The Fringe Club (Edinburgh), and The Paramount Center for the Arts (Peekskill).

Tickets for The World Goes 'Round range from $35-$45 and are available at halfmoontheatre.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006. * Denotes members of Actors' Equity Association, the union of professional actors & stage managers
