Just the name Zorba brings up visions of earthy Greek men dancing in a bouzouki circle in a café on the island of Crete. Zorba himself is a lusty life force of a man, free, and instinctive. He is a drinker, a lover, fighter and philosopher. Within the various stories and subplots, the read drama is the zest for life that fills every scene. The Kander & Ebb score supplies wings for the story with songs that soar with joy, sorrow, and the affirmation to live every moment.
