Another Play to look forward to - XANADU


Xanadu is a 90-minute musical comedy with a book by Douglas Carter Beane, music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, based on the 1980 cult classic of the same name which was, in turn, inspired by the 1974 Rita Hayworth film Down to Earth.

The story of the whimsical and comic musical focuses on the Greek muse, Clio, who descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest creation of his life - a roller disco. But when Clio, disguised as an Australian roller girl named Kira, falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and Clio risks eternal banishment to the underworld.

The musical opened on Broadway in 2007. It has earned an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and a Drama Desk Award for Best Book. It was nominated for Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Book.
