    "Sheer Joy! – I haven’t enjoyed myself this much at the theater in months.” – Talkin’ Broadway

    Based on the cult film of the same name which starred Olivia Newton-John, this riotous new musical follows the efforts of a magical Greek muse named Kira who descends to Earth to help a struggling artist achieve his dream. 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.

    Featuring Cheo Bourne, Patrick Connolly, Shana Dirik, McCaela Donovan, Ryan Overberg, Robert Saoud, Kami Rushell Smith, Kathy St. George, and Val Sullivan

    Directed by Paul Daigneault
    Music Direction by Nicholas James Connell
