One of Broadway’s most spirited characters!
“After love…. what else is there?”
ZORBA – Book by Joseph Stein. Music by John Kander. Lyrics by Fred Ebb.
“Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret) travel us to Greece with one of their most beautifully evocative scores in this TONY AWARD winning Broadway Musical. Based on the 1952 novel and 1964 classic film, ZORBA is a tender and turbulent evening of love and passion.
“Every minute is a new minute… every second is a new second!”
