And the World Goes ‘Round, a musical revue showcasing the songs of the talented songwriting team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, will be presented by Foxcroft School on Friday, Oct. 26, at 7:30pm, in FoxHound Auditorium on the School’s campus. The public is invited to attend the revue, which is free to the public. Please call (540) 687-4511 with questions or to reserve a place.
And the World Goes ‘Round takes its title from a song Kander and Ebb wrote for Liza Minnelli to
sing in the film New York, New York — whose title song may be the duo’s most famous work.
The show presents of a wide-ranging collection of tunes from Kander and Ebb’s prolific
compositions for stage and screen. Their most popular Broadway shows include Cabaret,
Chicago, Woman of the Year, and Kiss of the Spider Woman. Film successes include Funny
Girl, Chicago, and Cabaret, which won eight Academy Awards.
The Foxcroft show, directed by Fine Arts Department Chair Karin Thorndike, will present a
shortened version of the original revue and features three boys from Millbrook High School
(Winchester) along with a dozen Foxcroft girls. The boys — Dennis McAndrew, Brendon
O’Donnell and Logan Sandefur – are all vocal students of Foxcroft Chorale Director and Music
Coordinator Amy Asbury and have regularly been selected to perform in the District and All-
Three more students of Asbury’s — seniors Seabrook Brown of Charleston, SC, and Teddy
Segmueller (Gainesville, VA) and junior Krissa Thorndike (Middleburg, VA) — lead the Foxcroft
contingent. Brown and Thorndike had major roles in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella and
The Addams Family, Foxcroft’s past two spring musicals, and Segmueller has been a standout
soloist in previous fall revues.
Additional Foxcroft students featured in the show are seniors Ella Blazek (Chantilly) and Leah
Schuster (Big Horn, WY); juniors Abby All (Middleburg), Courtney Bartlette (Waldorf, MD), and
Kenzie Green (Leesburg); sophomores Jennifer Cramer (Herndon) and Julia Garrison
(Morgantown, WV); and freshmen Maddie Johns and Remy Patterson, both of Middlburg.
And the World Goes Round opened on March 18, 1991, Off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre,
and closed on March 8, 1992, after 408 performances. It won the Lucille Lortel Award for
Outstanding Musical and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical Revue.
Kander, who wrote the music, and Ebb, the lyricist, collaborated for over 40 years until Ebb’s
death in 2004.
