About the Show

A silly new musical based on the 1980 cult classic film of the same name.

Story: While roller skating on the beach, Kira, meets and falls for a frustrated record album cover artist named Sonny. Enter Danny McGuire, an aging song and dance man who Kira inspired back when he owned a supper club in New York in the 40s. Together, with the help of Kira, Sonny and Danny team up to build and open a roller disco nightclub called Xanadu.
