The surprise hit of the 2007-08 Broadway season roller skates its way into Actor's Express in a frothy explosion of camp, comedy and disco! Xanadu uproariously sends up Olivia Newton-John's notorious 1980 film of the same name, in which a feather-haired Greek muse with an Australian accent descends from Mount Olympus to modern-day California to help a hunky young man open a roller disco. Never has a movie begged more for parody - and Xanadu the musical delivers with delicious wit, pure fun and classic disco songs that will have you believing in magic and humming all the way home.
Audience Advisory: Patrons are advised that Xanadu will include the use of a strobe light, as well as haze.
