Experience the magic of the 1980s in this Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you! Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time: the first roller disco! But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.
