Light hearted musical with good music from the 80's. The acting was super. We laughed a lot during this performance. The costumes were outrageous!

It is always difficult to carry out camp to perfection and having seen the original Broadway production in a nice small space in New York, this production does not quite pull it off. However, the music is fun and there are some very funny moments....continued

Great adaptation of this sometimes hit-or-miss musical.The leads were fantastic and well cast and I especially enjoyed the set design and use of projections. GO SEE IT!

Such a parody of the movie (which I adore)!! Loved the actors, loved the songs, loved the stage set, loved the costumes & loved the many laughs! If you have a sense of humor, you'll enjoy it and get some good laughs.

Having not seen the movie, I wasn't sure what to expect. I enjoyed the music........the songs were well done and the female lead sounded a lot like Olivia Newton John.

While the movie version of Xanadu was less than stellar, I was a big fan of the music theatre version of the show having seen both the original Broadway cast and then the national tour company during their extended stay in Chicago. I was excited...continued

Energetic spoof on Greek muses. Well acted (and skated).

If you closed your eyes you would think you were listening to Olivia Newton John-Gina Milo delivered. The whole cast was very good and they had terrific voices. The play was light and fun. A great way to spend an afternoon or evening.

Enjoyed the musical alot. Did not like the seats we were given......the very back row. The view was fine, but the aisles were narrower....felt very cramped. Alot of empty seats, so after intermission, 2 of the 5 of us moved to the row in front...continued

You don't go to Xanadu expecting serious theater...and they did a great job with this silly show. My 5th grade girls loved it, especially the disco ball, catchy songs, and sparkly costumes. Super fun day out.
