Pull out your leg warmers and dust off your roller skates..."Xanadu" is now on stage. Seriously. Based on the Universal Pictures film of the same name - starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly - "Xanadu" follows the journey of a magical Greek muse named Clio who descends from Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California to inspire struggling artist Sonny Malone to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time: the first roller disco. But when Clio - disguised as an Australian roller girl named Kira - falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage and chaos abounds.
Sprinkled with parody references to the film, this hilarious musical adventure rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, and includes new arrangements by Eric Stern of "I'm Alive," "Magic," and "Suddenly" as well as two classic Electric Light Orchestra songs - "Strange Magic" and "Evil Woman." The show opened on Broadway in 2007 and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical.
"Xanadu" is hilarity on wheels for adults, children, and anyone who ever wanted to feel inspired. Directed by Melissa Huston, Music Directed by Ken Kimble, Choreographed by Felicity Stiverson.
