Tremendous fun! Strong cast -- good singing actors, especially our fair lead, Clio/Kira. Makes you want to dance (and sing along, if you can remember the songs).

If you want to laugh have a good time to come out smiling try the show. It's a real hoot. The cast is first rate and really can sing and rollerskate

Description

Book by Douglas Carter Beane

_Washington Premiere _

The award-winning instant cult classic musical comedy – featuring the hit songs “Magic,” “Suddenly” and “I’m Alive.”

Grab your loved ones and glow sticks – as Signature turns the MAX Theatre into one big disco-heaven ball!

1980. Venice, California. Legwarmers are in and roller skates are way sexy.

Xanadu, the zany send-up of the cult film starring Olivia Newton-John, delivers rock-star hilarity in an electrifying tale of forbidden love. Kira, one of seven quirky Greek muses, is sworn to three things: to inspire mortals, never reveal her identity and never, ever fall in love. However, when she emboldens struggling artist Sonny to create the first roller disco, Kira feels the artistic pull of her own.

Xanadu is sponsored by The Bernard Family Foundation.
