I’ll tell you a little secret about Mac-Haydn’s double header of musical revues, because you deserve to know.

By Andrew Andrews

Start spreadin’ the news: Mac-Haydn is singin’ the songs of Kander and Ebb.

If you think you don’t know any of those songs: guess again.

(Theme from) New York, New Yorkespecially as performed by Frank Sinatra—is their best known.

Have you seen the movies or musicals Chicago or Cabaret? That’s them, too. And nearly two dozen other shows, as well.

The World Goes ’Round extracts twenty-nine numbers—that’s right: twenty-nine!from their catalog, and pins them back-to-back in a two-hour revue of nothing but song and dance.

And if that’s not enough for you, Mac-Haydn is concurrently putting on Beehive: The ’60s Musical… and sometimes you can even see both shows on the same day, as I just did!
