Featuring an ingenious book by Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed) and a score full of chart-topping tunes (“Magic”, “Suddenly”, “Evil Woman”), Xanadu is hilarity on wheels.

"Self-referential cheese has never been so much fun. With tongue firmly planted in cheek, the SpeakEasy Stage Company delivers a veritable kitsch-fest complete with leg warmers, glow sticks, a giant disco ball and songs like "Evil Woman" and "Have You Never Been Mellow?" setting the scene."
