The Co-op production certainly had its rewards, but the results that Reed achieves prove much more satisfying. His sparkling rendition celebrates the breadth and beauty of the Kander-Ebb songs and the formidable talents of his cast without trying to force the wide-ranging songs into an unnecessary framework.
Les Spindle – EdgeLosAngeles
Though now officially licensed as The World Goes Round, the revue’s latest revival at the NoHo Arts Center gives it back its original ‘91 title, a decision fully in keeping with this sensational, back-to-its-roots staging of one of the most entertaining, tune-packed song cycles in musical theater history.
