Who's Who in the Company

Xanadu follows the journey of a beautiful Greek muse named Kira who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California on a quest to inspire Sonny, a struggling artist, to build his greatest artistic creation – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters are enraged and chaos ensues. This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score including pop-rock hits such as Magic, Evil Woman, Have You Never Been Mellow, and Xanadu. Winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Musical.
