Xanadu - The Musical



Xanadu at Drury Lane is a fast moving musical and quite hysterical. We didn't see the movie in the 80's which made todays theatre excursion an interesting return to that decade and its music. The cast was great - and the performance was a real treat. Cast member and north side actor Julius Thomas' synopsis was perfect - it was great to 'laugh for an hour and a half'.

The musical just opened in Chicago on January 16th and there’s only one video posted so here are samples from the Broadway production of the smash hit.

The stage version...

The original performers most of you will recognize
