Go back to the 1980’s in this glorious and glittery take on the cult movie-musical Xanadu at the Connecticut Repertory Theatre. It’s hilarity on roller skates as the beautiful Greek muse Kira descends from Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, CA on a quest to inspire the creation of the first roller disco! “Can a musical be simultaneously indefensible and irresistible? Why, yes it can,” said the New York Times when Xanadu opened on Broadway in 2007. Filled with chart topping pop songs such as Evil Woman, Strange Magic, and Have You Ever Been Mellow, Xanadu will take you and your family on a hilarious roller skate ride through mirror-balls, disco dancing and to the heights of Mount Olympus.
