A play with songs by Rachel Dickstein
Music and Lyrics by Heather Christian
Based on Gertrude Stein's The World is Round

"Playful and musical and beautifully presented....The marvelous musical settings and the committed performances show this to be a collaboration in the truest sense between the artists and all of them with Stein."
—Michael Glitz, The Huffington Post

Confused by what is real and what is not, Rose climbs a mountain looking for an answer. Armed with a blue chair and a host of songs, Rose climbs to the top, but what she finds is not at all what she expected. Through a rocking live score, aerial dance, and acrobatic choreography, The World is Round shoots us through a kaleidoscope of Rose's dreams, fears, and ambitions.
