In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "There’s so much silly bliss to be had ... there is enough first-rate stage talent rolling around in <em>Xanadu</em> to power a season of wholly new, old-school, non-jukebox musicals." -- <em><a target="_blank" href="http://theater2.nytimes.com/2007/07/11/theater/reviews/11xana.html?_r=0">The New York Times</a></em>
- "<em>Xanadu</em> is so ridiculously brilliant, so lavish and sublime a confection that any set of adjectives you might come up with after a single viewing will more than likely be replaced by another set of ineffectual adjectives once you’ve seen the show a second or third time ..." -- <em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/theatre/2007/07/23/070723crth_theatre_als">The New Yorker</a></em>
This roller-skating musical adventure about following your dreams ROLLS into Legacy! Based on the 1980 movie starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu includes “hip” pop-rock favorites such as “Magic,” “Suddenly” and “Xanadu.” It’s hilarious-on-wheels for adults, children, and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired!
