“Leave the World Behind” – Steel Pier

Music: John Kander   Lyrics: Fred Ebb

Leave the world behind today with this little-known Kander and Ebb musical about dance marathons.  The time is the 1930s.  During a brief break from dancing, Rita dreams of being whisked off by the pilot she loves and doesn’t know is living on borrowed time in this ethereal tune.
