"The World Goes 'Round"
"The World Goes 'Round (The Kander and Ebb Musical)" - Kander and Ebb.
Judi Dench Theatre, Mountview, London.
Directed by Ian Good.
Designed by Alan Bower.
Designed with the elements in mind - fire and water. The director asked for an intimate revue bar feel, with a baby grand piano. Costumes were all various shades of red.
I decided to use a white baby grand piano and treat the floor with U.V. paint so that U.V. light and colours can be used to dramatically change the environment. The use of rostra and in-fills will also give many levels to work with.
